Who we are
The Parent Mentor Project promotes communication between families and schools. Parent mentors provide resources, guidance and support to families.
What we do
Parent mentors provide information and support to families of children with disabilities and their school districts. Each mentor is a district employee and also is a parent of child with a disability.
The Parent Mentor Program is offered by school districts. Check to see if your district or county has a Parent Mentor.
On January 12, 1991, in Columbus, Ohio, the idea for Parent Mentor Projects was born. About 160 parents from across the state gathered to decide how to implement Goal #7 of the Ohio Department of Education’s Special Education Action Plan.
no cost for services
All parent mentor services are free of charge to families. The Ohio Department of Education provides the funds for Ohio Parent Mentor projects.
