After receiving his PhD, he served as a consultant to hundreds of public and private schools, working with teachers to help them create safe and successful learning environments for students with learning and thinking differences.
He has held faculty positions at Boston College, Wright State University, and Lesley College, where he was founding director of the Learning Lab. Dr. Schultz has set up and run several hospital- or university-based clinics serving children with special needs, most recently at the Center for Adolescent and Child Development at the Cambridge Health Alliance.
