Early Childhood to Middle School Division
My name is Tracey McEntyre, A 20 year Educator, am Autism Mom, and Master IEP Coach® . I am the parent to an incredible son who has Autism and ADHD. My son was officially diagnosed at age 2.5 yrs old. When we began our Autism journey, I was lost and didn't know where to start. I finally found a local organization and they assisted me in getting the services my son needed.Then I began learning about Special Education law, Autism, whatever I could get my hands on and sharing what I learned with other families.
When my son entered his 5th grade year I learned the importance of a rich IEP and the power I had to truly transform my child's IEP to fit his individual needs (Game Changer!) The more I learned, the more confidence had to help my son. Once I became an IEP Coach there was stopping me from helping families help their children get the most from their IEP, give families the tools they to encourage and advocate for their child with confidence.
I look forward to meeting and helping you on this journey we call life.

My name is Cristina Kennedy, from Personal Care Support for adults in the home environment, enabling them to live independently, to creating and providing inclusive accommodations and modifications for Elementary Students, I’ve spent the last 15 years dedicated to individuals with learning differences.
During my time in college I met students who had varying learning needs, had received services in High School, but weren’t getting them anymore and suddenly found themselves feeling overwhelmed and struggling in college. I began helping them learn how to navigate the student resource center, empowering them with a better understanding of their educational rights, and ultimately with becoming a advocate for themselves
I have a Bachelor’s in Business Management, Sociology, and History, and I am Certified in Education for Special Education, ESL Supplement, and Generalist EC-6.
