The monthly “Gwinnett County Parent Mentors Present” learning series is designed for families of children with disabilities, and presented by the parent mentors in collaboration with GCPS' Special Education Department staff and community leaders and organizations. Parent Mentors are parents who work within GCPS' special education department, providing information and support to other families who have children served in special education. The mentors have first-hand knowledge of raising a child with special needs as they both have a child who has been served or is being served in GCPS.
