Students with Disabilities in Ohio

Each Child Means Each Child

The state of Ohio recognizes that more must be done to improve the learning experiences of students with disabilities. That is why Each Child Means Each Child was developed to provide guidance, recommendations, and action steps to help ensure all students benefit from the vision and core educational principles outlined in Future Forward Ohio.

What We Do

Our consultants offer support to educators, families, and community partners to promote successful student outcomes through technical assistance, coaching, networking opportunities, and professional development.

Guiding Documents, Policies & Compliance

As a part of the Statewide System of Support, State Support Teams work closely with the Ohio Department of Education & Workforce to provide training, resources, and technical assistance to schools and districts as they strive to ensure that each child has access to a high-quality education. The documents, policies, and laws shared here provide the foundation to this work.
