Dr. Jennifer Foster

I am a parent of a child with Autism and a child with Aspergers. My 25-year- old son was
diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 1994. Since
he received his diagnosis, I have researched the latest techniques in
teaching individuals with ASD. I have worked closely with
 Schools in the state of Alabama in developing a research-based
language enrichment programs for my son and other students with
ASD.  In doing so, I have attended many workshops as a parent
and have hundreds of hours of hands-on- experience with people
with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I have also presented at the National Autism Society's annual conference on numerous occations.
