“If they can not learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn”
Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas
My name is Sabrina Thomas and I am Author, Parent Coach, Speaker, Columnist, and passionate Autism & Special Education Advocate who empowers parents to become their child’s best advocate.
I am a mother of two beautiful sons, one of whom has special needs. My drive sparked and fueled by my experience as a mother of a my youngest son Omar. I have a vision of educating, empowering, and supporting special needs families through advocacy.
My compassion and enthusiasm combined with the love for my son and appreciation for all people living with special needs are the driving force behind my awareness initiatives.
With over 19 years of experience as an advocate I became a strong voice in my field.
Having worked in the hospitality field for 20 years, my ability to provide kind compassion and enthusiasm to everything I do allows me to serve as a voice for the special needs community. This ability combined with my love for my son and my appreciation for all people living with special needs are the driving force behind my awareness initiatives.
Rooted in my beliefs of giving back and effective advocacy, I am a supporter of the March of Dimes, St Jude’s Hospital, and Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. I also served as an Autism Speaks Volunteer Advocacy Ambassador, among other organizations that support autism and other developmental disabilities.
Currently, alongside my awareness advocacy, I am working on my Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leader. I am also the moderator of a Facebook Group, ” Especially Loved” which supports parents and caregivers on their special needs journey.
Through my advocacy, it is my mission to ensure special needs families never go at it alone and always feel supported.
