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

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!

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

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".

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!

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

Their Trainings are absolutely the BEST!!!

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

I would give them more funding so they can continue what they do and offer more free services to families with disabilities.

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!

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.

How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

A lot

How likely are you to recommend this organization to a friend?

How do you feel you were treated by this organization?

How did you find this group?

I believe information through my child's therapists.

Helping me manage my child's special needs.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

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.

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.

my son's schools.

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

make none.

I am a new parent of a child born with a rare chromosome abnormality. Nevada PEP has helped me to understand and navigate the organizations that offer services for my child. They also provide support to parents when they need it most! Being a parent of special needs child is a role most people are not prepared to fill, but with the guidance of NV PEP, parents can make their way and gain confidence in their new role.

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

The support and guidance I have received regarding requesting services and respite care for my child have been wonderful!

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

Have a second location in Henderson, NV to serve the parents and children in this are of the valley.
