BeyondAutism welcomes new CEO 15th October 2015 We are delighted to welcome Tracie Linehan as the new CEO of BeyondAutism. Tracie has a wealth of leadership and management experience within the field of special educational needs and disability; having experience of both charity and education, she worked for Scope for over 20 years, where she held two headships and ultimately rose to the rank of Regional Director for the South of England. More recently Tracie has been Executive Head of the Autism Schools Trust where she led on setting up and developing The Rise, an ABA Free School. Tracie has experience of developing early year’s provision, establishing outreach and training services, providing strategic leadership to schools and developing Post 19 and adult services. We look forward to working with her to build on the excellent foundations that we have been able to establish thus far, to grow the charity and expand its ability to provide specialist education for people with autism.
