Parent Resources

Parent Mentor

Navigating the waters of parenting and special education services is challenging – so many terms to learn; what are parent and student rights, who is responsible for what, what are the options and how or where can my child get help to be successful in school and in life?  It is easy to feel directionless and after seasons of smooth sailing, what happens when you come up against rough winds that seem to knock you off course?

If you find yourself and your special needs child in a boat that feels like it is either sinking or lost, maybe you need a mentor – a guide – to come alongside you. The school’s purpose is to develop a system of educational services for all students with disabilities to ensure a meaningful and appropriate education: your purpose is helping your child land safely at his destination of a fulfilling life.  Getting through school is the first leg of the journey.  The Parent Mentor is here to help with guidance, provide a variety of information, supports and resources, attend IEP and other meetings, and build collaborative partnerships to benefit students with disabilities – ALL FREE!

Please read the newsletter by following the link and look for the Parent Mentor brochure in your school building.  Please use my contact information if you need my help or have any questions.  I’m happy to share the journey with you!

Never give up!
