Erin presents internationally on the topics of school inclusion, emergent literacy and language development, and assistive technology. She has authored articles, book chapters, and manuals for classroom teachers and parents.

     Erin works with school teams to support students with complex learning needs to learn to use communication systems and succeed in inclusive classrooms. She is on the Communication Advisory Committee of the Angelman Syndrome Foundation and led a free year-long webinar series for educators, The Communication Training Project. She is the CEO of Integration Action for Inclusion, Ontario's parent organization for school inclusion.
