Parents Encouraging Parents (PEP) is designed to bring parents of children with disabilities together in an accepting and confidential environment, giving them the opportunity to share ideas and concerns and to obtain information on parenting and educating a child with a disability.
One objective of the weekend is to help parents realize that each is doing the best he/she can do at this time. Parents who attend will go home with renewed energy, spirit and hope along with a desire to work closely with professionals who serve their child so that every child experiences the fullest life.
This conference is open to all Nebraska parents who are raising a child with a verified disability. The child with the disability must have either an active IFSP or IEP.
Enrollment is limited to 100 participants and registration is on a first come, first serve basis.
For further information, call Ann Figard at the Nebraska Department of Education, Special Education Office, at 402-471-2471.
