Bonnie Armstrong is Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Shaken Baby Alliance, a national organization based in Fort Worth, Texas.  Ms. Armstrong graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tarleton State University where she received a B.S. in Education.  Bonnie taught in the public-school system for over 6 years, teaching both regular education and special education.  In 1996, Ms. Armstrong co-founded The Shaken Baby Alliance, and in 2000 became the Executive Director of this agency where she served as the Lead Consultant for the Serious Physical Child Abuse and SIDS Advanced Investigation Program and Regional Training Institutes.  In this capacity, Bonnie led a multidisciplinary team of professionals in the development of curriculum and training programs focused on the forensic investigation of child physical abuse. From 2003 to the current date, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS) made this child physical abuse investigation training program mandatory for all child abuse investigators.  In 2010, TDFPS chose The Shaken Baby Alliance and a team led by Bonnie Armstrong to develop a training program related to the forensic investigation of elder abuse.  Based on the success of this program, in 2013, TDFPS again chose The Shaken Baby Alliance/Bonnie Armstrong to develop a training program entitled Mental Health and Physical Conditions and the Elderly Population.  These courses are now mandatory classes for all Adult Protective Service investigators in the State of Texas.  Ms. Armstrong has written numerous articles for regional publications related to child welfare issues and was the Lead Author of the Chapter, “The Grieving Process and Family Support” in the book Child Fatality Review, An Interdisciplinary Guide and Photographic Reference, Randell Alexander, M.D., PhD, FAAP (GW Medical, 2006).  Bonnie provides case consultation services for legal personnel and law enforcement on serious physical child abuse and child fatality cases in all aspects of the case from offense through prosecution and lectures at various training institutes and conferences each year throughout the United States. She is the mother of three children, one of whom is a survivor of Shaken Baby Syndrome and a Special Olympic athlete
