Hi, I'm Amy
M.Sc., PhD, BCBA-D, RASP-A
Dr. Tanner has over 15 years of extensive clinical experience providing behavioural intervention and consultation services to very young children with autism throughout Europe, Africa and Canada. She is a Board Certified Behaviour Analysts, supervises undergraduate and graduate level students pursuing certification, a professor, an Authorized Continuing Education (ACE) provider through the BACB and creator of the SPARC (Sequential Parent Curriculum). Her academic and clinical interests include working with infants and toddlers showing signs of autism or developmental delays through parent-mediated intervention or parent-coaching, working with children with food selectivity and challenging meal time behaviors, as well as studying neuroplasticity in early childhood and the effects of the environment on the developing brain and the intersection of positive psychology on goal setting and achievement.
I use a play based approach that is rooted in Naturalistic Developmental Behaviour Intervention. I specialize working with infants and toddlers who are showing signs of autism or developmental delays, and provided parent training and coaching to maximize your child's developmental trajectory.
I have been a speaker at various conferences around the globe and have presented original research in Japan, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, U.K., and throughout North America
