Caryn Ward, PhD, is a Senior Implementation Specialist/Scientist with the National Implementation Research Network at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Ward provides intensive, informed implementation supports to state and local education systems nationally through her work on the State Implementation and Scaling-up of Evidence-based Practices Center, Center on School Turnaround, and National Center for Early Childhood Development, Teaching, and Learning. In addition, she co-leads the development of several implementation capacity measures and fidelity measures for use within state and local education systems. Previously, she has provided direct and indirect services as a school psychologist, a Response to Intervention (RTI) district coordinator, and the project director for the North Carolina RTI Consortium. The consortium developed several implementation tools under Dr. Ward’s leadership such as the Implementation Roadmap and others to develop implementation capacity, solve problems, and assure organization wide evidence-based practice use and sustainability.
