After earning her Master of Education Degree, Jen started out 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 Educates (formerly known as 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. Her mission is to help bridge the gap between homes and schools by getting parents and teachers working together.
Jennifer and her team provide in-home educational services, online support via video technology, and phone consultations to assist families. Autism Educates helps children overcome sensory challenges, and assists with academics, behavior, social skills, and communication challenges.
Autism Educates was founded because of the growing need for support and education in our autism community around the world.
