Parent Mentors

picture of hands holding familyA Parent Mentor is a parent who has a child with a disability.  We have seven Parent Mentors in our region.

Mentors can act as a liaison between parents and school and help guide families through the special education process. Ohio Parent Mentors provide free services to families who have a child with a disability. If a parent mentor for your child's school is not listed, please call us at (937) 236-9965.
