About Jennifer Lingle, M.Ed.


Jen started as a classroom teacher in 1999 and experienced, first-hand, the triumphs and tribulations that come with working with incredible individuals with autism in a school setting. She wanted to do more because she felt limited by the confines of the classroom environment.

In 2006, Jen founded Autism Consulting and Training, Inc. a thriving company that enables her to work with parents, teachers, and children around the world in their homes, schools, and communities.

Jen knows how overwhelming it can be for both teachers and parents to work together and navigate the spinning world of autism. So, in 2012, she started Autism Educates and the International Autism Association for Families and Educators. Her mission is to help bridge the gap between homes and schools by getting parents and teachers working together.

In 2015, Jen decided to make the International Autism Association for Families and Educators online community FREE, so that parents and teachers all over the world could access this invaluable content. Her online resource is now called the Autism Educates Community!

Jennifer continues to provide in-home educational services to children with autism in her local Asheville, North Carolina community. She helps children overcome sensory challenges, and assists with academics, behavior, social skills, and communication challenges. She also offers online, video-conferencing, and telephone support to parents all over the world.
