Jessica Sellers is a board certified behavior analyst with over 10 years of experience working with children, families, and schools in a variety of contexts. She began her career as a teacher before helping to create the Behavior Support Team of Metro Nashville Public Schools. Jessica took on the role of team lead, supervising and building high-quality behavioral supports for Metro students from preK-8th grade. Nine years later, she made the decision to branch out on her own.
Her desire to work with parents grew out of not only her experience providing in-home Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, but also her work with parents in the school system. As a mama of two herself, Jessica saw and related with the daily struggle of parents who need help navigating behavioral issues at home, regardless of disability status. Jessica provides thoughtful, positive intervention strategies that are appropriate for a child’s developmental level. She seeks to work with parents as partners, empowering families to teach their children positive replacement behaviors for lifelong success.
Her expertise also includes providing consultative services to school personnel, facilitating the creation of functional assessment-based behavior intervention plans for individual students, developing positive classroom management systems, and creating positive behavior interventions and supports on a school-wide level. She is available to provide schools with staff training, school-wide coaching, classroom management assistance, and consultation on individual student behavior plans.
