Nevada PEP has been instrumental in supporting families with special needs chidren. I have been involved with this wonderfulorganization for many years. The advocates have helped many of the families that I come in contact with.
Many families experiece frustration when looking fro educational
supports for their children.Nevada PEP works closely with many districts throuchout the state of Nevada to provide assistance for the families of these children.Students have a far greater chance to succeed within an educational setting when Nevada PEP is involved!!

Most parents do not even realize the extra emotional strain, physical effort, and expense it takes to care for a child with disabilities. We take it for granted that we wake up our children, we feed them and take them to school. It is NOT that easy for a parent with a child with special needs.

I have seen first hand the “labor of love” that my very best friend has undergone with the constant care for her son. She has been blessed with the assistance from the Angels at Nevada PEP. They have assisted her with her son’s challenges with school and therapies, etc…. They offer monthly IEP clinics to help parents understand the special education process.

Nevada PEP offers assistance to Parents with training, resources and support to children with disabilities ages 0-26.

This organization is a god-send to Parents with children with disabilities. I would only hope to see changes in legislation on a national level to make it easier for these parents.

As the proud parent of a 16 year old son, with multiple disabilities, I was at a complete loss of resources to help me understand all that I was facing. It was not until I found NEVADA PEP, that I was able to cope.

We have been with NEVADA PEP, for over 9 years, and all through ALL of
the workshops that they continue to provide to families of children with disabilities, they just quite simply make "our world" a better place!

The entire staff at NEVADA PEP, just somehow makes you feel, like hey, "everything is going to be oaky", and with all of the training and strategies I have learned, WE ARE OKAY. NEVADA PEP, rocks, HARD!!!

I have been on the receiving end of NEVADA PEP, on so many occasions. We found them over 9 years ago, and I was so impressed with this "selfless", organization, I actually even volunteer currently, as does my daughter and my "special son", as well. He screams in delight to get to go and volunteer at NEVADA PEP!

The only changes I would make would be to suggest that MORE families would be able to find out about this "diamond in the rough".

Returned to Nevada with my son with special needs in 1991. He was having many difficulties in this transition, and noone could help. That is until someone told me to contact Nevada PEP. From that third grade until his high school graduation and beyond, Nevada PEP was always there for us. With workshops and information and the latest in the laws, to attending and assisting in getting him the best IEP's possible, they were always there for me. That is why I turned around and volunteered, and sat on the Board for eight years. To give back for all they did for us.

Before I relocated to Nevada, I was calling all types of organizations to find out what type of services were available for my child with a Disability. I was eventually referred to Nevada PEP and they immediately sent me a packet of information that allayed my fears and reassured me that everything would be alright after I made my move. I called them as soon as I arrived and I received an Advocate that helped me understand the system here and get the services I needed to support my daughter. I don't know where I would be without Nevada PEP!

My daughter is 12 years old and has cerebral palsy. Over the years Nevada PEP has been a great resource. I have called numerous times just to ask questions like "Is there anyone in town who can help with . . ." or "Is there a such thing as a therapist who helps with . . ." Any question I have related to my child's special needs has been answered. They have helped me understand more about the school system and the IEP, even going with me to an IEP meeting to help me in getting my daughter's needs met. The best thing is that when something happens and I am really upset, they are just a phone call away. They listen, sympathize and help me to solve my problem. Don't know what I would do without them!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping me to find the community resources to help my child, helping me to understand my child's IEP, helping me to resolve problems with my child's school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to make sure all parents of special needs children really knew about their services as early as possible. Maybe working with the early intervention program, or the elementary schools. I know it would probably take a huge advertising budget, but if there were only some way to get more information out so people like me would start using their services earlier in their child's life.

Nevada PEP makes the life of many families. Knowing that they themselves are family members of a child with a disability says so much about what they do. They have passion for helping families. Their unconditional support and determination to educate and empower parents has not price. They are an organization that makes Nevadans very proud.

I am extremely happy to have encountered Nevada PEP. My family was going through a very hard situation with our kid. Through their advocacy, Nevada PEP was able to assist us in ensuring that my kid felt safe at his school and they taught us how to appropriately talk with the school as a team. God bless nevada PEP.

Nevada Pep let me volunteer for them about two years ago. I have never worked with more wonderful and generous people in my life! After my volunteer work they asked me to go to the RRR conference in Las Vegas Nevada and at that time my family could not afford the trip but they were able to fly me there and my room. The confrence was amazing I was so grateful to able to be a part of that experience i will never forget it! When I need help for my son i can call them and know that they will help me!

My son has needed a high level of special ed help since 2001. We moved to Nevada in 2008 and I felt completely lost by the whole new set of acronyms etc. due to the differences from state to state. Nevada PEP helps me "translate" so that I can once again be a good advocate for my child, and continue to teach him how to advocate for himself also. This help has been priceless and will affect my son for the rest of his life.
