Sherrill Allen, right, receives 15 new headphones from Kodey Toney, director of the Pervasive Parenting Center. Toney delivered the headphones recently to Liberty School in Sequoyah County. The headphones are part of a grant offered by the center for special education departments in Sequoyah, LeFlore, and Haskell counties to help with classroom supplies.
The Pervasive Parenting Center recently purchased 15 sets of headphones to help a local special education department. Recently Center Director Kodey Toney delivered more than $200 worth of equipment to help Liberty Schools.
The headphones will be used to help children in the special education program with taking tests and other assignments. The equipment the school was using is outdated and limited, Allen said. The new headphones will help all children but especially those with sensory and attention issues.
“With the huge deficit we are all feeling in Oklahoma we understand that budgets are tight in schools,” said Toney. “This is especially true in the special education departments. We felt this was a little way to give back to the community and help the children in our local schools. We’re here to help families, schools, and especially the students.”
The Pervasive Parenting Center is a non-profit organization that helps families in eastern Oklahoma find resources available for people diagnosed with autism and other disabilities.
The board of directors provides grants of up to $200 for local schools that provide a reasonable and necessary need for the funding throughout the year. More grants are available to schools in LeFlore, Sequoyah, and Haskell counties. To apply visit www.pervasiveparentingcenter.org and fill out an application.
