Amy is the director of the Early Childhood Disabilities Transition project at the Center for Children and Families.
She has worked in the field of early childhood since 1985, including serving as a preschool teacher and as a family service worker, parent involvement coordinator, and center director during a 15-year career with Head Start. For 11 of those years, Amy was closely involved in accessing services for children with special needs. Her experience has strongly confirmed her belief that prevention, early intervention, and individualization are the keys to children reaching their full potential.
