Stacy Greene is the parent of an ASD young adult who began his education in Cobb’s Special Needs Preschool Program, made several transitions through Cobb schools, and graduated in 2017. Her son has earned several college credits and participated in Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation programs; he is currently employed full-time.

Cobb’s Special Education Parent Mentors enhance communication between parents and educators, ultimately leading to greater success for students with disabilities.  The goal of the Parent Mentors is to help parents understand their role in their children’s education and to provide guidance and resources to help them navigate the Special Education process.

As parents of students with disabilities, Cobb’s Special Education Parent Mentors provide resources to families of children with special needs while helping them navigate Special Education.  As mentors, they are part of the broader Georgia Parent Mentor Partnership, whose mission is: “Building collaboration and communication between families and educators ultimately leads to greater success for children with disabilities.”
