Visiting Research Scholar, Duke Center for Child and Family Policy
Amy Schulting is a visiting research scholar at the Center for Child and Family Policy. She has worked in the field of education for over 20 years as a classroom teacher, teacher trainer, researcher and educational consultant. Her research has focused on supporting the transition to kindergarten among high-risk students.
Schulting is collaborating with Macomb County ISD in Michigan to implement and evaluate teacher home-visiting as a kindergarten transition practice.
Schulting lives in Minnesota where she also consults with school districts and legislators on the implementation of early screening and evidence-based instruction for students with dyslexia.
Along with colleagues, Philip Cook, Kenneth Dodge, and Elizabeth Gifford, she recently completed The Early Truancy Prevention Project, funded by a Development and Innovation Grant from the Institute of Education Sciences. The Early Truancy Prevention Project takes a multi-pronged approach, integrating universal teacher home visits, teacher-led interventions for chronically-absent students, and innovative technology to guide and document teacher intervention efforts.
