The aim of the project is to translate, culturally adapt, and evaluate the "Early Identification System" (EIS), which is a school-based tool for identifying individuals in need of support, adaptation, or intervention at an early stage.
Previously, RISE, as part of the government's assignment "Early Coordinated Interventions," conducted a review of the tools used in municipalities to identify individuals in need of support, adaptation, or intervention at an early stage. It was found that there is very little Swedish research in this area and that there is a need to develop this field.
As part of our support for the public sector, we intend to translate, culturally adapt, and evaluate the Early Identification System (EIS), a school-based tool for identifying individuals in need of support, adaptation, or intervention at an early stage.
EIS has several components, and in the initial stage of the project, we will focus on the target group of F-3. Teachers already have significant knowledge of which students may require adaptation or support, and we want to use EIS to systematically gather this knowledge so that it can be quality-assured and used as decision support and for mapping.
In the long run, there is also an ambition to link a set of research-based interventions to the result of the mapping with the EIS tool. The ambition is also to make EIS freely accessible, provided that we can demonstrate that it works as intended.
The work on EIS is being carried out by RISE in collaboration with two school authorities, Lidingö Municipality, and Knivsta Municipality, with RISE as the project leader.
