About Jennifer Lingle, M.Ed., President and Founder:

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. She met parents who were exhausted, overwhelmed, and had absolutely no idea how to help their kids in their homes. Watching parents struggle day in and day out was difficult for her to witness. Teaching in the classroom is an incredible profession. However, working with parents and children in their homes sets the foundation for a successful future. There is no feeling in the world like providing you with strategies that work, so that you can have more control over you and your child’s life.

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.

In 2012, she started, because she knows how overwhelming it can be to navigate the spinning world of autism. She has brought her many years of experience, education, and knowledge to you in an easily accessible format.

Not only does Autism Educates teach others about autism, but it also allows autism to educate others. Jen believes that we live in a society where we can make changes to our environment to meet the needs of all populations of people. She also believes that autism has so much to teach this world and that is the reason she created…for us to help each other.
