It's Been Rough And Rocky Traveling
One of the first things I say as I'm addressing groups in eastern Oklahoma is that the resources are limited in our area, an what is available most people just don't know about. This is one if the main reasons I decided to start the Pervasive Parenting Center. I want to help connect people with the resources available and bring those resources to the area. Saturday April 26 will be one of those opportunities. The Oklahoma Family Network will hold a Joining Forces Conference to help families learn how to strengthen their partnership with the professionals in their lives for the benefit of your children.
This conference is beneficial to everyone including parents of children with special needs, special health needs, foster parents, new parents, teachers, and professionals. The best part is that it is FREE! This includes lunch.
We held one of these last fall in Sallisaw and the information was great. It gives everyone involved a chance to understand how important networking and community relations can be for your child and others.
We're encouraging anyone in the area to attend.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and that is especially true when that child has special needs.
There will be speakers throughout the day to tell about their experiences in providing the best care they could for their children. Some if the roads were rocky, but in the end they had a better outlook thanks to the help of the community around them.
This will be held at the Dale Cox Community Center in Poteau, Ok.
