One of our primary focuses will be on working with community partners to provide more community programs which are accessible to children with disabilities at low or no cost. For example, getting a haircut can often be an overwhelming experience for a child or the child’s family. Whether it is dealing with the variety of sensory experiences in a salon or managing to get a wheelchair in a typical environment, this otherwise ordinary task can be quite challenging.
Additionally, we hope to provide access to services that might otherwise be denied due to funding issues. For example, in the future, we hope to be able to provide scholarships for therapy services. We also hope to add to the already existing network of support groups and education outreach that exists for families of children with disabilities here in Tulsa and the surrounding area.
