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 helps provide families with a place to find answers to questions about what is available to them. We also assist in applying for and receiving those resources. This is achieved through networking with existing state and federal programs.
We 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.
We also work with families in schools to help them understand their rights, and advocate to make sure they are receiving the services they need. This includes advocating in Individual Education Program (IEP) Meetings.
