Klein writes for and is quoted in the media including print, TV, radio and digital. She has been called the ‘toddler whisperer’ by Good Morning America. She consults worldwide to programs for children, was a developmental advisor to Sesame Street, and is an advisor to Children’s Museum of Manhattan, Hunts Point Alliance for Children, Room to Grow, and S.
