In rural eastern Oklahoma the resources for families coping with disabilities are limited. This tends to leave parents unaware of what is available. The Pervasive Parenting Center can help provide families with a place to find answers to questions about what is available to them. We can also assist in applying for and receiving those resources. This is achieved through networking with existing state and federal programs.
We can help offer local schools, organizations, communities, and businesses training to help provide people with disabilities a better life. By providing workshops and continuing education courses we can help inform people in rural areas about subjects ranging from inclusion in the classroom, people first language, emergency personnel training, sexuality, and assistive technology.
While we work with any families in need, our main areas of focus are the eastern Oklahoma counties of LeFlore, Sequoyah, Latimer, and Haskell.
