Oklahoma Self-Advocacy Network

 

Happy New Year! Oklahoma Self Advocacy Network (OKSAN) is a collaborative effort to strengthen the self-advocacy movement in Oklahoma and to increase the inclusion and independence of people with disabilities. OKSAN has training component that allows self-advocates the opportunity to help develop and provide trainings to other people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) as well as family members and professionals on topics that are important to the disability community. We currently have the following trainings available:

-Bullying
-Emergency Preparedness
-Taking Control of Your Health
-SALT (Self Advocacy Leadership Training)
-Disability Awareness
-Sexual Health and Wellness Overview (full training in development)

These trainings can be 2-4hours depending on the time and availability you all have. Some groups reserve 1 class at a time, others have offered a morning and afternoon session of two different topics, and a third option would be breakout style (hosting at the same time with session choices). All of our trainings are open to people with IDD, professionals, and family members.

We are currently scheduling for the spring semester (January-June 2023), and I would like to invite to schedule classes for your group and/or organization. We offer in-person trainings across the state and a virtual option via zoom. If you are interested in learning more and/or would like to get some classes scheduled, please reach out to Miranda: [email protected].

Partners include DDCO, Oklahoma People First, Oklahoma Disability Law Center, Center for Learning and Leadership, The Arc of Oklahoma, the Department of Rehabilitation Services, and TBI Raiders.
