PEP services are about empowering families to be life-long advocates for their children through education and skill building. PEP recognizes that parents are experts on their children; and must learn about disabilities, intervention needs, and how to develop a support system to meet those needs.
Over the years, not only has PEP made a difference in the individual lives of families, PEP has also made a positive impact on child and family services through community collaboration, public awareness, partnering with professionals, and system advocacy efforts.
Nevada PEP supports family leadership in policy-making decisions at the local and state level to guide the development of meaningful services that are family driven. Nevada PEP believes that the community benefits when individuals with disabilities, live, learn and participate fully in their own community.
Yes, Nevada PEP will explain the process of getting your child tested if you should suspect a disability. Also we have a resource library available and invite parents to come in and check our books, videos and handouts.
