Description:

The Parent Mentors for Dublin City Schools and the Special Education Advancement Council (SEAC) will host an interactive meeting connecting parents with Service and Support Administrators (SSAs) from Franklin, Union and Delaware County Boards of Developmental Disabilities. Each SSA will meet with families from their county and share the following information:

  • What is the purpose of the Board of DD and why is important to connect early in a child’s life?
  • What resources does your local County Board of DD offer?
  • What is county funding, what services does it cover and how can parents access it?
  • How does county funding work with personal medical insurance?

This training is designed to help parents understand the County Board of DD system and how they can work together with their caseworker to connect to the supports and services needed for their child.  Families will separate into groups based on their county and meet with the SSA and representatives from their local county DD agency.  There is time for the last portion of the meeting for families to ask specific questions that they may have regarding DD services and county funding. 

Come get your questions answered by those who are knowledgeable in what your county provides and how to access those services.

The event will be held at the Dublin Community Rec Center, 5600 Post Road, Dublin, OH 43017.  

This FREE event is open to any parent in Central Ohio who reside in Franklin, Union or Delaware County.
