Jacqueline Shannon is associate professor in Early Childhood/Early Intervention with over 25 years of experience working with culturally and linguistically diverse children birth to five years with and without disabilities and their parents in home-, center- and hospital-based settings. Her research examines children's development and parenting (mothers & fathers) within the context of poverty, with a goal to improve services to children (0-5) and reduce disparities for ethnic and racial minority groups in NYC and internationally. Dr. Shannon developed NY's first Advanced Certificate in Early Intervention and Parenting (2014). Some publications appeared in Applied Developmental Science (2007), Child Development (2004, 2007) and Family Science (2013). Prior to BC, Dr. Shannon was a research scientist at NYU on the National EHS Research project, a NICHD post-doctoral research fellow, and directed a home-based parenting program in East Harlem, NY.
