Ann-Bailey Lipsett is a special education specialist and DIR/Floortime practitioner with twenty years of experience working with children, families, and schools. She founded her company, Lipsett Learning Connection, in 2016 to develop positive social-emotional learning experiences for all children, regardless of their abilities and backgrounds. Much of Ann-Bailey’s beliefs in education were formed during her six-year tenure at Mason Crest Elementary School in Fairfax County, Virginia. It was here that she truly came to understand how to set high expectations while providing students with the help they need through the power of a collaborative team.
As an education writer, Ann-Bailey has blogged for the Council for Exceptional Children’s Reality 101 blog in 2014 as well as for Joey’s Foundation. In this latter endeavour, she followed the growth of one child with cerebral palsy learning to use an augmentative and alternative communication device. She is the co-author of PREVENT Problem Behaviors: Seven Contemplative Discipline Steps and authored the article “Supporting Emotional Regulation in the Elementary School: Brain-Based Strategies and Classroom Interventions to Promote Self-Regulation” published in Learning Landscapes. Ann-Bailey has presented her work on increasing engagement in students with disabilities at the state, national, and international levels.
Ann-Bailey is currently a Fellow in the Infant-Parent Mental Health Program at the University of Massachusetts-Boston. She earned her Bachelor's degree from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, and her Masters in special education from the University of Virginia. She has advanced her understanding of neurodevelopmental practices through her coursework through the International Council for Development and Learning (ICDL). She is certified as a Circle of Security facilitator.
