The purpose of PEP is to bring parents of children with disabilities together in an accepting and
confidential environment, giving them the opportunity to share ideas, feelings and common concerns,
and to obtain information on parenting and educating a child with a disability. By the end of the
conference, parents will go home with renewed energy, spirit, hope, and a desire to work closely with
professionals who serve their child so that every child can experience the fullest life.
