New ideas and a fresh perspective to support all children with special needs

Join a unique mentoring experience tailored for anyone serving children in Primary, Elementary, and Adolescent Montessori environments. Our series is a compass for transformative teaching, providing expert guidance to enhance your skills and create an inclusive learning haven.

"Most days, I leave school feeling exhausted and defeated."
"How can I support them when they are struggling?"
"Why can’t I reach that child?"
"How can I embrace their disability and help them grow and learn?"

Over the course of 6 sessions, we will:

  • Recognize and meet sensory needs in the Montessori classroom
  • Build confidence and skill in managing difficult behavior
  • Learn about the importance of self-regulation and how to assist children to grow in their skills of handling big emotions
  • Identify ways to support children with autism in the Montessori classroom
  • Investigate student-specific issues alongside colleagues from other schools, learning from their experiences and perspectives, and formulate a tool to take back to your program
  • Master the art of having difficult conversations with families and colleagues for respectful, clear partnerships

Meet your mentor

Amy Williams

Amy Williams, MA, DTR, RMT is the founder, trainer, and consultant at Amy Williams Academy.

With nearly three decades working in and alongside Montessori programs around the world, she shares your deep respect for all children and believes we all want to be the best grown-ups in the lives of our students.

She also believes that sometimes we feel like a failure and simply don't know what to do.

“My life's work is to walk alongside you to learn new techniques that support all children, practice the skills that address the struggles in your classroom and your home, and celebrate every success. 

My years as a dance/movement & expressive arts therapist, counselor, and educator inform and influence the work that I do with children, educators, leaders, and families.”
