On The Road Again
I'm constantly questioned about resources available in our area. In fact, the main reason that Jennifer and I started the Pervasive Parenting Center was to help bring resources to this area and show what is available. The upcoming On The Road event will showcase many of the resources both state-wide and local that are available to help your family.
I have been asking Sally Selvidge for a couple years to please bring this event to Eastern Oklahoma, and she finally agreed last spring.
Sooner Success sponsors the one-day conference to help families navigate the disability world.
There will be more than 20 representatives on hand to explain what their program can do and to answer any questions you might have. These include TEFRA, Oklahoma Family Network, Partners in Policymaking, Epilepsy Association, Easter Seals, Oklahoma People First, Sibshops, DDS Waiting List, Oklahoma Disability Law Center, and Oklahoma Parents Center, just to name a few.
The conference will be held Tuesday, Sept. 16, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. It will be in the Costner/Balentine Ballroom at Carl Albert State College in Poteau. Lunch will be provided and everything is FREE. That's right, it costs you nothing.
I understand that this is being held on a weekday, but I promise it's worth the time. Even if that means that you need to take off work, you will be glad you did.
There will be an assistive technology demonstration at lunch.
This is something that can be very beneficial, and is important for your family.
All disabilities are included.
