Andre Spivey is the founder and CEO of Live 2 Learn Differently, Inc. He comes with a wealth and diversity of IT experience spending over 8 years in the US Air Force. During his time in the Air Force, his son was diagnosed with autism as he began school which inspired him to find a way he could use his experience to help him learn.
Spivey built the start-up Live 2 Learn Differently to have a huge impact on the technology used to teach children with autism and other special needs. Through this he developed the mobile apps “HearMePlease” and “GoToZoo” and many more these educational apps for children with autism. Some of these apps used currently by schools in the United States and South Africa.
Andre has a B.A. in Organizational Management and Leadership Skills from Morris Brown College, and Graduate Certificates in Financial Management, Business Leadership Skills and Executive Leadership Skills from Cornell University. He is also Business Communications major at Harvard Extension School.
We embarked upon a journey to create something that matters to us and many other parents. A company that provides tools for the parents of special needs children. During my time in the Air Force I enjoyed traveling to many places with my wife and 3 sons, including living in Portugal for two years, visiting, Spain and Germany. I have 3 sons ages 10, 9 and 8, my 9 year old was said to be with autistic when he was 3. We were glad and lucky to find out early, since then we’ve had many adventures. He is the inspiration for this company. I began making apps to assist my son, and later thought that, other parents may find these tools useful for special needs children. The first app created was our Go To Zoo, which I made when I initially moved to the Tampa area in order to prepare my son for our trip to see animals at a local theme park.
We appreciate all the support we are currently receiving as a start-up, as we are at the beginning of our journey towards creating more and more tools for parents and children everyday.
