I hope my work will support you in creating change for children and families.


"Talking with Amy about what I am doing, then seeing it written down, helps me see where we have been and where we are going.   It gives me a chance to step out of the action, take a refueling breath and continue on path to create change."  
–Laura Ensler, Laura Ensler Consulting, LLC and Founder of FirstStepNYC

"Amy listens to adults (and children) in a way that brings forth their genuine, essential voices and responses without the distortion of expectation."

"After reading The Ordinary is Extraordinary I knew I could be a parent."  –Deb S.

Amy Dombro is a bit of a rock star in the early childhood field. Awriter, educator, observer and thinker, she has taught me how  to really see, hear,  and deliver what families and teachers need to support their children.  She has a way of seeing what others miss, and a magical quality that makes real change possible.  
—Lisa Bernstein, Founder and Publisher, Simply Put Media


"Amy writes with a warm, personal, and respectful tone that helps the reader feel cared for and at ease.  She is able to convey complex ideas simply, clearly, and with tremendous compassion.  Her writing has enriched the materials we have created for both families and professionals." 
—Dorinda Silver Williams, PhD, LCSW-C, ACSW;  Director, Military Family Projects; ZERO TO THREE

"Amy has a unique way of not only listening but also probing people's ideas and memories to get at the very heart of a story and to communicate it in a way that resonates with everyone. Ten years after she wrote "Smart Start in Action", I was still giving that report to other states and communities to learn from in building their own community initiatives."  
—Gerry Cobb, now Director of State Services, BUILD Initiative

"Using her skills and insight, her compassion, and her ability to see the bigger picture, Amy has helped countless professionals engaging in or preparing for work with the military grasp the culture, challenges, and resilience that characterizes life for current or past military members and their families."
