Join me on today’s podcast episode as I chat with my good friend, Diana Abril, special education attorney and parent. Diana and I not only talk about the importance of parent advocacy but also about steps that she’s taken to get started on her journey as a parent. She offers lots of tips on where to get started in a parent advocacy journey, what skills to develop (and where to find training for them), and how she tackles the inevitable mommy guilt that often accompanies parent advocacy. Diana’s not only a brilliant attorney – she’s an endearing friend, and that vibe comes across in today’s episode. Diana’s speaking at the Special Education & Advocacy Conference in a little over a week. If you haven’t registered, hop over to do while you’re listening!
Meet The Guest:
I am an executive with 16 years of legal and business experience having worked in the Corporate and M&A department of an AMLAW 200 law firm and as General Counsel of two medium sized companies, one of which was publicly traded. In February of 2020, I decided to start my own law firm and founded ABRIL LAW, PLLC. This decision was born out of a desire to start a special education law practice in addition to my corporate and business law work. This is truly a passion project for me, as a disability rights advocate and mother of a child with a disability. I am a Florida Partners in Policymaking graduate and a member of COPAA.
