About Sabina Duhon
Sabina Duhon has over 21 years experience working with special needs children and adults. She has a Masters of Arts in Speech Pathology from the University of North Texas, is a licensed speech-language pathologist in the state of Texas, and holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. As a speech-language pathologist, working within the public school setting for 10 of her 21 years in practice, Sabina became interested in pursuing advocacy as a means of helping the children that live within her community to achieve their highest levels of potential. Following training with the Council Of Parent Attorneys and Advocates, Inc., via their SEAT Program, Sabina began to provide support to families in Houston, and the surrounding area, with their children's special education and 504 needs. She has volunteered with the Houston office of Disability Rights Texas and continues to volunteer her time to support children within CPS custody to ensure that their educational needs are met. This work was acknowledged in 2016, as Sabina was recognized for "Volunteer Service" by Disability Rights Texas - Houston.
For Sabina, advocacy is about ensuring that each child's individual needs for success are identified and targeted. With the most appropriate IEP in place, each child is able to achieve to their full potential. Sabina believes that a strong, collaborative relationship between the clients she represents and the school districts from whom they receive their education is a critical component in achieving and maintaining successful outcomes.
