About

Jennifer Barbas, Ph.D.,

Licensed Psychologist

When children experience learning difficulties, parents often seek support to understand their child’s needs and discover treatment options. I help families by providing comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations to properly identify their child’s strengths and challenges. I enjoy working together with families to suggest strategies which focus on the distinctive academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs of their child.

I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Furman University and went on to The University of Georgia to earn both a Master’s and a Doctorate degree in School Psychology. I have practiced for over 10 years, working with families and children ranging in age from infants through adolescents. I have experience evaluating and treating children with developmental disabilities, learning challenges, and emotional-behavioral difficulties. Most recently, I have completed extensive coursework for teaching students with Dyslexia using the Orton-Gillingham instructional approach and have volunteered as a Dyslexia tutor.

My husband and I have been on the journey of homeschooling our two boys, one of whom has Dyslexia and ADHD, for the past four years and look forward to many more educational adventures with them.
