Through talking things over with Tracy I have gained a better understanding of how we can best advocate for our son. Navigating the school system has already been a steep learning curve! Having Tracy’s insight has been so helpful in understanding not only my child, but also the goals and policies of the school administration, the perspective of the teachers, the roles of the various agencies, the dynamics of a classroom. Tracy is tremendously supportive and explains clearly and fairly. Best of all, Tracy knows what it is like to be a parent trying to wrap their head around all this! Tracy takes a calm and thoughtful approach and never once has made me feel silly for asking questions, feeling confused and/or overwhelmed, or having a rant! Our whole family has felt the benefit of Tracy’s expertise and support and all the local and online resources she has connected us with.The Archibald Family
This is the 5th year that our daughter has had an IEP. However, it is the first year that I have felt like I have any understanding of it or ability to contribute to it in a meaningful way. Tracy has been instrumental in helping us to navigate the process and to advocate for our daughter while building a team approach with the school. Having her notes at hand keeps me focused in meetings. This helps me to keep on track and to come out of the meeting with a sense of accomplishment and feeling that I have been a part of the process instead of a bystander.
Tracy is has not only been a resource teacher and educator, but also a parent of children with IEP’s. This gives her a unique position of seeing both sides of the IEP building process. She is generous with her support and knowledge and helps me to diplomatically advocate for my child. I count her as a key member of our team!Fiona Fisher, Parent
