Tracy Wagers

Tracy Wagers has 18 years of experience working with students with learning disabilities and emotional and behavioral disorders. Her most recent position, as the Director of Humanex Academy in Colorado, gave her six years of in-depth experience serving middle and high school students on the autism spectrum. Her work at Humanex also included training students in anger management, appropriate social skills, conflict resolution, and life skills. Prior to serving as Director, Tracy taught English for nine years at Humanex, which gave her the opportunity to adapt curriculum and instruction along the entire continuum of learning abilities for students.

Tracy is a member of the American Educational Research Association and also a trained Love and Logic instructor. She is currently finishing her master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies at the University of Colorado at Denver. Her master’s degree focus has been on revitalizing creativity in American education which fits with her belief that the educational system should not be more important than the individual. Tracy is the mother of 7-month-old twins, a boy and a girl. She is also an artist in her free time.


Individualizing the Student

Parents can support their teenager on the spectrum in many ways, but one that often gets overlooked is the support provided by helping school staff see your young adult as an individual.
