Join Us June 27 to Celebrate Jeri Cooper Act

Join DRS Visual Services staff and friends for the DeafBlind Awareness Celebration on Wednesday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the south lawn of the state capitol at 2300 N. Lincoln Boulevard in Oklahoma City. 

We encourage all DeafBlind advocates and Support Service Providers (SSPs) to attend and show their appreciation for the enactment of HB-1244 (Lepak/Griffin), the Jeri Cooper Act, which will provide more availability of SSPs for individuals who are DeafBlind in Oklahoma so they can participate more fully in society.  

Pictured at the signing of the legislation are Representative Mark Lepak, Governor Mary Fallin, Jeri Cooper, Visual Services rehabilitation teacher and DeafBlind specialist with one of Jeri’s SSPs, Clayton, who is behind her.
