Having earned his MA and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Albany, Dr. Jed Baker is a behavioral consultant for several New Jersey school districts where, nearly two decades ago, he organized a group to help children with social communication problems. That group expanded and ultimately became the Social Skills Training Project under Dr. Baker’s directorship. Dr. Baker also presents lectures all over the world on social skills training, and is on the board of directors of the Asperger’s Syndrome Education Network, Inc. (ASPEN). His work has been featured on ABC News and Nightline.
