Dr. Hurth retired after 29 years with TA projects at Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute where she was Associate Director of NECTAC for 24 years. In her part-time encore she now divides her time between the ECTA Center and NERRC. She recently directed a Technical Assistance project with Washingon which resulted in modules and resources on Implementing and Sustaining an Effective Service Delivery Approach: Stages and Steps that have been adapted to make them available to all states. She co-led the consensus building Workgroup on Principles and Practices in Natural Environments. She continues her focus on helping states translate and incorporate processes and structures to implement and sustain effective practices, based on research from implementation science, for example: Thinking about Strategic Implementation: Integrating Outcomes Measurement into the IEP / IFSP Process.
