More recently, Emily has joined the team at the Marcus Autism Center which is affiliated with Emory University. As the Director of the Educational Outreach Program, she provides support for the development of community viable models of staff training. Her focus is on building the capacity of school systems and early intervention providers to serve as informed consumers of evidence-based practices. Emilyâ€™s professional vision is to empower our public schools with a framework for social emotional engagement and learning that is: 1) ecologically valid to the demands of achieving academic standards, 2) sensitive to the unique needs of students with social learning differences such as autism, and 3) can serve as a universal design for learning that benefits all of our students and young children in order to maximize return on professional learning.
