    • Knowledge Production: activities that include a rigorous technical review to determine which tools, practices and implementation strategies are deemed scientifically valid and appropriate
    • Expert Training: follow-up activities to drive implementation supports for RTI/ Early intervention services on a broad scale
    • Information Dissemination: activities that will involve forming partnerships and reaching out to target stakeholders via ongoing communication
    • Center Evaluation: formative assessments to help improve the delivery of our services in states and districts across the country.
