The RTI Action Network website is a great resource to explore the latest research regarding RTI implementation in a variety of settings and across all levels of education.

The most recent research article I read, Roadmap to Pre-K RTI: Applying Response to Intervention in Preschool Settings explores adding RTI programs to the Pre-K level. This article is packed with useful information including:

  • Major components of Pre-K RTI
  • RTI approaches implemented in various states
  • "9 Step" Implementation page for taking a RTI approach school-wide
  • Websites to explore further information

The information in this article is recommended for anyone involved in the Pre-K RTI process. If you are new to the RTI process it will give you an introductory overview. If your district has already implemented a RTI program it is a great way to view other Pre-K RTI approaches.

This research article includes the following major components of Pre-K RTI:

  • Learning About the Child’s Strengths and Needs: Screening, Assessment, and Progress Monitoring
  • Evidence-Based Practices and Standard Protocols
  • Fidelity of Implementation
  • Collaborative Problem-Solving
  • Parental and Family Engagement


The article provides examples of RTI approaches implemented in various states such as:

  • Recognition & Response (R&R) Implementation sites in Florida and Maryland
  • The Literacy Partnership- Implementation site Washington, D.C.
  • Center for Response to Intervention in Early Childhood (CRTIEC)Consortium partner states: Kansas, Minnesota, Ohio and Oregon
  • Rockford Early Childhood Program- Rockford Public Schools #205, Rockford, IL
  • Colorado State Department of Education- Colorado’s Pre-K RTI Model
