Jessica Kelly  M.S., BCBA, LBA
 
 
Senior Supervisor

Jessica Bensimon has been working with children with autism for over 7 years and has been involved in the field of Behavior Analysis for about 5 years. Her initial interest in working with individuals with autism and Behavior Analysis sparked after her younger cousin was diagnosed while she was in High School. Jessica received her B.A. in Psychology with a concentration in Behavior Analysis and Child Development from Florida International University in 2011. She then received her M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis and Autism in 2013 from Sage Graduate Schools. Jessica obtained her BCaBA certification in 2012 and subsequently her BCBA certification in 2013. In 2011, Jessica received an award of excellence for her contribution to multiple research labs from the Department of Psychology at Florida International University, where she conducted autism related research funded by Autism Speaks. In addition, while completing her Master’s degree, Jessica served two terms as the ABAI student representative for her program. Finally, while attending Sage Graduate Schools, Jessica participated in the conception of an online forum-based social skills group for students attending the Sage Achieve online bachelor's program for individuals diagnosed with ASD.

 

Jessica's experience and training with ABA has been providing early intervention therapeutic services with a concentration in Verbal Behavior. Since her transition from Florida to Virginia, Jessica's training has extended greatly from working with infants to kindergarten aged non-verbal children to working with children varying in ages and abilities/deficits. Jessica also has a huge interest in the dissemination of Behavior Analysis and in advocating for the rights of individuals with special needs in Virginia Beach. In addition, Jessica is currently the Vice President of the Virginia Beach Special Education PTSA and the Secretary of the Tidewater Association of Behavior Analysis.

 

Working for NBC, LLC has opened up a new world of Behavior Analysis in relation to individuals with autism and related disabilities for Jessica. She has had the opportunity to provide multiple staff trainings, organize multiple speakers to travel to Virginia Beach for workshops and presentations, and has had the opportunity to present at multiple conferences. Jessica is the proud owner of two dogs that she considers as her children. On her free time, Jessica enjoys teaching her cousin (who lives in Southern California) social skills via Skype and FaceTime as well as volunteering time to organizations such as the Autism Society of America, Tidewater Chapter.
