Lisa Jacovsky currently lives in her hometown of North Brunswick, NJ. She works as a Child Development Specialist with Early Intervention. In her job she is able to help children under the age of 3 with cognitive and developmental delays, sometimes with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. She has been working in the field of applied behavior analysis for eight years and this is where she had inspiration for writing her very first series, Lets Talk!. Her hopes for this series are to simply inspire families and their children to be open to anyone no matter their differences. There will be six books in the series. Lisa has always loved writing and hopes to use this way of expression to show the beauty that is in Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Lisa is also working on her second Masters degree in school psychology to receive her license. Writing has taken her to this level and she is excited for the possibilities this degree will bring her. Her research interests include social anxiety, mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She is excited to see where her writing and research will take her next.
