Ohio's Parent Mentor Project

Our Students Deserve Special Attention

We Are Here To Help

For nearly 30 years, Ohio Parent Mentors has helped families navigate local and state special education processes and services so that children with disabilities can get the most out of their educational experience. Using our lived experience and an evidence-based approach, we work in collaboration with families, schools, and agencies to create the conditions for success for your child.

With our support as peers and trained mentors, parents will understand the special education process and become better advocates for their children.

Ohio’s Parent Mentor Project offers all services free of charge to families. 

Together, we can help your student with special needs get the special attention they deserve and find their pathway to educational success.
