Amy began working in the field of child development and disability in 2006. Before joining the Telethon Kids Institute, Amy’s past work experiences included her role as a Clinical Research Associate for the Autism Research Centre at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto, Canada. It was there that Amy coordinated clinical trial studies that investigated targeted treatments for the core symptoms of autism spectrum disorders in children and adolescents.
Amy currently coordinates processes for several international and longitudinal rare disorder databases involving Rett syndrome, MECP2 Duplication, and CDKL5 disorder. She also manages a study that is developing and evaluating a new quality of life measure for children with intellectual disabilities across four diagnostic groups (Autism spectrum disorder, Cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and Rett syndrome).
Amy’s continued interests include exploring diverse diagnostic, treatment and intervention options for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
