The Nevada PEP is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to providing information and support to families of children with disabilities. The acronym "PEP" stands for "Parents Encouraging Parents,""Parents Educating Professionals," and "Professionals Empowering Parents." PEP’s mission is to enhance opportunities for success for children with disabilities, their families, and service providers through education, encouragement, and empowerment activities. Nevada PEP was established in 1991 and guides more than 5,000 families to appropriate community programs, services, and resources. PEP conducts training workshops on a number of issues including basic rights for children and families, effective advocacy techniques, stress management, early childhood and school transition, and due process and mediation. PEP maintains a resource library and publishes a series of "PEP Tips" that cover topics like modifications and adaptations, educational evaluations, basic rights under IDEA, behavior management, conflict resolution, community resources, and communication skills. PEP representatives provide outreach to underserved communities through public awareness activities. Representatives collaborate with professionals who support Nevada’s families to bring about positive system change. Members of PEP participate on steering committees at the local and state level.
