The Ohio Department of Education support our families of students with disabilities. Check out their website to learn more and gain beneficial resources.
The page features information to help families better understand the special education process. It includes the newly created Evaluation Roadmap to show families what to expect if they feel their children may need additional supports or Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). The Evaluation Roadmap shares key timelines, links to documents that schools must use and supporting information at each step for a better understanding of what parents can expect. The Evaluation Roadmap is downloadable and available in multiple languages.
Also featured on the Families of Students with Disabilities page are direct links to agencies in Ohio that offer one-on-one assistance to families of students with disabilities. Resources for families related to getting involved with their children’s learning, early childhood and preschool, and literacy also are on the page.
