Oklahoma Self-Advocacy Network (OKSAN)
The Oklahoma Self Advocacy Network (OKSAN) is a collaborative effort with the Redland Partners (link Redland Partners) - https://ouhsc.edu/thecenter/About-Us/Redlands-Partners) to:
- Strengthen the self-advocacy movement in Oklahoma and
- Increase the inclusion and independence of people with disabilities.
OKSAN has developed several training curriculums, which are led by adults with intellectual, and developmental disabilities (I/DD). These opportunities are available for persons with disabilities, family members, and professionals.
- Handling Bullying Situations
- Emergency Preparedness
- Taking Control of Your Health
- Self-Advocacy Leadership Training (SALT)
- Disability Awareness
- Sexual Health and Wellness Overview
Trainings can be specially designed for you, typically lasting 2 to 4 hours, depending on the time and your needs and can be delivered in-person or virtually.
If you are interested in learning more and/or would like to get some classes scheduled, please reach out to Melissa.Gituma@okdhs.org.
Partners with the Council are Oklahoma People First, Oklahoma Disability Law Center, Center for Learning and Leadership, The Arc of Oklahoma, the Department of Rehabilitation Services, and TBI Raiders.
