Parent Mentors

 A Parent Mentor is a parent who has a child with a disability who is dedicated to helping other families navigate the special education process. There are parent mentors working in schools in our region, as well as across Ohio.

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