Season #1

Join us in welcoming our special guest, Sabrina Axt. Sabrina is a practicing attorney based out of the San Francisco Bay area, and she has been for over fifteen years. 

Her career and personal journey have led her to leave civil litigation in order to advocate for her child and she now exclusively practices special education law. 

Sabrina guides her clients through the special education process, helping them to understand and advocate for IEPs and accommodations. She equips parents with the tools they need to advocate for their children 

In this episode, she speaks to us about the legal aspects of dyslexia and special education.
