This collaboration between the Council and Sooner SUCCESS increases current respite options available in Oklahoma for those identified as primary caregivers of children and adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD). Caregivers include parents, single individuals, and others who may fall in the caregiver category. All caregivers supporting an individual with I/DD is eligible, regardless of current status in seeking support services for their child.
These opportunities will offer caregivers and self-advocates social connections, support, and a chance to rest.
This collaboration supports the Council Goal number 2, Objective 2 of its 5-Year State Plan: Oklahomans with developmental disabilities and their families will have increased access to resources, services and supports across the lifespan that will allow them to live their best lives.
