What ideas do you have to better the lives of Oklahoma’s children?

I have a daughter with a severe learning disability and I have been advocating for the last 7 years for protocols to identify and early intervention to help children with learning disabilities succeed.

What have you done to support children prior to this election? 

Please see answer above. As a member of the Edmond chapter of Decoding Dyslexia I’ve been raising awareness about an identified learning disabilities and the difficulties that these children face. I’ve also spoke about the issue in front of the Edmond Public schools board.

What will you do to support families in your new role, if elected? 

Policies for child related issues. I am also a small business owner who feels the frustration of difficult access to health care for the self employed. I would like to explore options for Oklahoma by reaching out to other states who have found success in this area.
