Amy B Schulting

Visiting Research Scholar

Amy Schulting is a visiting research scholar at the Center. She has worked in the field of education for over 20 years as a classroom teacher, teacher trainer, researcher and educational consultant.

Schulting’s research has focused on supporting the transition to kindergarten among high-risk students. She 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, Schulting 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.
