Groups Combine Efforts for Families of Disabled


The Pervasive Parenting Center and Developmental Wings are combining efforts to help families in eastern Oklahoma. The two non-profits will present Family Support Night at 6 p.m. Nov. 17 at the Waylon Jones Complex in Roland.

The Pervasive Parenting Center will offer their monthly parent support group meeting to help the families find resources, talk to other families, and provide moral support for coping with disabilities. This meeting is open to everyone including families, professionals, teachers, etc.

Developmental Wings will offer their regular music and art therapies to children at the same time. These classes are designed to engage children and encourage creativity.

These services are provided free to local families.

“One of the things that we have been asked in the past is why we don’t offer respite for the children during support meetings,” said Kodey Toney, director of the Pervasive Parenting Center. “This is a real issue for parents to find some place for their children to go while they receive the help they need. Developmental Wings is already offering therapies for the children, so we thought it would be a way we could help each other out and the families as well.”

For more information contact Toney at 918-647-1255, 918-658-5076 or ktoney@pervasiveparentingcenter.org, or Michelle Qualls-Long at 479-459-0645 ormichelle@developmentalwings.com.
