National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI)
The National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI) is a five-year technical assistance center funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs. The Center is managed by AIR in consultation with researchers from Vanderbilt University and in collaboration with researchers from the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. The Center supports the implementation of RTI on a national level, including activities and services designed to
- identify, adapt, evaluate, and scale up RTI frameworks as well as assist states in their efforts to scale up RTI initiatives;
- provide ongoing support and technical assistance to states to support implementation of comprehensive RTI programs in districts, schools, and classrooms nationally; and
- disseminate information about proven and promising practices within RTI frameworks to our target audience, including parents, service providers, program administrators, policymakers, and other interested stakeholders across the country.
