Early Intervention, Lifelong Impact

Hi, I'm Amy 


Amy Tanner

I bring a warm and compassionate approach to my work, focusing on supporting the youngest of hearts. I am proud to be among the few practitioners who specialize in working with infants as young as 6 months who show signs of autism or developmental delays. 

 I am on a mission to equip parents with time-sensitivepractical and effective tools and knowledge during the most critical window in their child's neurodevelopment.  My creation, the SPARC (Sequential Parent Curriculum), is designed to bridge the gap for parents navigating waitlists and seeking appropriate referrals. Presenting research in Italy, Sweden, Germany, Greece, U.K., France, Japan and across North America, I share insights and learn from global perspectives, enriching my perspectives on effective early intervention and education.

As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and a professor, I have the privilege of shaping the future of infant intervention. Balancing my other roles as a clinician, researcher, author, and entrepreneur, I am committed to making a difference in the lives of children and families across the globe.

My work is fuelled by a belief in the transformative and life-changing power of early intervention and the potential within every child. Inspiring change and fostering development during these formative years remains the heart of my journey.
