As a mom of a child with a learning disability, Safaa experiences it firsthand. A few years ago, she decided to quite her regular job and join the school system as a Special Education Teacher Assistant. She has been assisting families with their IEP meetings and guiding them to be able to advocate for their children. Safaa has been a LDA member for over 4 years and is thrilled to be part of this amazing community and cannot wait to lend a helping hand when and where it is needed.
