Nancy Wells, LPC

Nancy Wells has been an autism advocate and activist for her children and community for more than two decades. After years as a stay-at-home mom, Nancy decided to further her scope by pursuing a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Community Counseling.  She is now a board certified cognitive specialist and licensed professional counselor with a specialty license for technology-assisted therapy. Her clinical practice focuses on individuals with autism and their families.

In 2015, she founded AbleTalks – classes for the next stage. Its mission is to address the drop-off point for adults on the spectrum that have lost therapies due to aging out at 21 years old. As a parent, Nancy saw first-hand how devastating life becomes when critical supports are taken away too soon. AbleTalks offers tuition free, independent education, mental heath and social language supports, and self-advocacy skills. It’s the belief that AbleTalks students are the experts of their own lives and, with support can develop fulfilling lives on their own terms…in their own time.

Nancy was recently profiled in “Autism Parenting Magazine” and has contributed to articles related to autism parenting in “U.S. News and World Report” and “The Boston Globe”. She also serves on the Arkansas Legislative Task for on Autism.
