About Vincent Caballero
I began my career in special education in July of 2002 as a special education advocate for a parent training and information center.
My duties included conducting workshops on a variety of topics to include: transition to public school, special education basic rights, IEP rights and strategies, bullying prevention, transition to adult services and rights and accommodations under section 504.
This experience provided me with a good understanding of various disabilities and how they can impede a child’s ability to receive an appropriate education. I have worked with families whose children have challenges due to autism, learning disabilities, behavioral issues, developmental delays, traumatic brain injury and other health impairments.
In 2011, I participated in coursework at San Diego University and became a Certified Special Education Advocate. Shortly thereafter, I registered as a member of the Council of Parent’s Attorney’s and Advocates (COPAA) and participated in conferences over the next few years. In 2012, I volunteered to be an Educational Representative, Court Appointed Special Advocate for youth in the foster care system.
Most importantly, I am the parent of a 26-year-old autistic son whose quality of life has skyrocketed due to efforts of his strong circle of support.
