She has helped these children in development of the language skills they lack to communicate effectively.

Amy has become very interested in the work of Michelle Garcia-Winner and Social-Cognitive/Social Thinking therapy. She attended a mentorship program at the Michelle Garcia-Winner Center for Social Thinking in San Jose, California where she received in-depth training in the social-cognitive therapy that Michelle Garcia-Winner and her associates have developed. In addition to that mentorship program, Amy was one of the few professionals in the world to be selected to attend the Michelle Garcia-Winner Center for Social Thinking as an Intern. This was an invaluable experience which she completed in February 2010.
She has attended numerous other trainings and workshops to continue her education and skill development in this area, including workshops on different aspects of autism and autism intervention including evaluation, play therapy, integration of children with autism spectrum disorders into the classroom, organization for children on the autism spectrum, social-cognitive strategies, social thinking, and communication strategies.
