The OCPS parent services program for Exceptional Student Education is a parent to parent partnership funded through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.For more than ten years, this program has offered peer support, community resource access, District information important to families, and acted as a conduit between schools and families in need. The program is designed to empower parents to advocate for their own children and to help parents teach their children self-advocacy skills.

Availability is important, so our team answers emails and takes parent phone calls at all hours, seven days a week. The parent services program is administered only by parents of OCPS students with disabilities who contract with the District and are not employees. These services for support and information are available to families in both English and in Spanish.
