Jane Barnes, M.Ed., BCBA
Jane was first introduced to Applied Behavior Analysis while studying Psychology as an undergraduate student in Florida. She immediately fell in love with her students and the practice of ABA. Jane completed her undergraduate degree from Saint Leo University in Psychology and Business Administration, and returned to her native Nashville. When unable to find a job doing what she loved, Jane opened Autism & Behavior Consulting Services, LLC in 2005. Having been taught by her grandfather, to always do what's right and that there's nothing more important than helping others, Autism & Behavior Consulting Services became not only her business but her passion. It began as a grass roots organization providing in home services to preschool aged children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Since then, Autism & Behavior Consulting Services, LLC has grown to service the entire Middle Tennessee region, working with children ages 2-13 years of age. Additionally, we are equipped to provide home, school and clinical support to families, better serving our patients needs and providing support throughout all their environments. In the meantime, Jane completed the BCBA course work from Florida Institute of Technology and obtained her Master's in Special Education with a emphasis in Consultation and Collaboration from Arizona State University.
