Tracey Butler – Practitioner, Trainer and International Speaker
Through the gift of her own son’s diagnosis of an Auditory Processing Disorder 20 years ago, Tracey was projected on a path passionately driven to find a solution to overcome this often-hidden disability and the significant challenges it brings to the table. Tracey is today incredibly proud of her son Ben, who in his final year of schooling authored the book “I Can Hear You…but I Don’t Know What You’re Saying. Ben is now a qualified A Class Electrician.
The success of the program with her son led to pioneering this technology in Australia and through her Links to Learning company she has since transformed the lives of thousands of children. More far reaching is the accomplishment of her vision to integrate these programs into the school system. With now more than 100 schools in Australia and New Zealand trained to provide access to students in need.
Tracey is the Australasian representative of Advanced Brain Technologies. Her outstanding reputation in the industry is evidenced by a wealth of in-depth knowledge derived from working with families for over a decade and delivering world class professional training across a range of sectors.
Tracey is an international speaker, trainer and practitioner. She has presented her expertise at conferences, seminars and workshops around the world including USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Tracey has been involved with clinical work, assessments, and treatments for people with Auditory Processing Difficulties since early 2000. She is a published author. “Changes in Auditory Processing after completing The Listening Program Training” published in 2020 in the International Journal Of Listening https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/10904018.2020.1772071
Tracey continues to work one on one with families throughout Australia with her practice Links To Learning. Tracey believes it is the children and their outcomes who can teach us most. The gift of their transformation feeds her hunger to continue to learn more. Her training and support of over 500 Practitioners throughout Australia and New Zealand has certainly contributed to an increased awareness of neuroplasticity.
Her vision is that children may have the opportunity for earlier intervention leading to stronger learning outcomes, easier social interactions, more positive behaviours and ultimately happier families.
These kids are the future of our world……and the centre of every parent’s universe.
