We are so proud of our own Megan Lewis who is on the council of Direct Support Professionals. She and the Executive Director of OADSP, Bethany Toledo, recently had the opportunity to meet with Director Martin at the State House in Columbus. They discussed the upcoming wage increases for DSPs which will take effect in July. Megan stated that Director Martin is very committed to DSPs and that he was extremely nice to speak with.

As we continue to highlight Developmental Disabilities Month:
March Is Development Disabilities Awareness Month. We're proud to highlight some of our awesome clients at work.
We've started a new group designed to help parents network among themselves in search of information, education, tips, success stories, etc. Being a parent of a child with epilepsy doesn't mean your child has to be little. Parents of any age child are welcome to join. Hopefully as more and more people become part of this group, we'll be able to splinter off into peer groups to facilitate greater impact where it's needed. Please feel free to share, we are keeping the group 'closed' so that we can manage posting and make sure things remain appropriate. ... See more

On February 23 and 24 we distributed tickets for the Toledo Walleye Game that ultimately were not able to be honored. For that, as the CEO of the Epilepsy Center of Northwest Ohio I do apologize. Please see the statement from Neil Neukam, the Executive VP/GM of the Toledo Walleye in regards to this manner: “My sincerest apologies again to you and The Epilepsy Center in regards to your recent experience at the Walleye game on February 23 and February 24, 2018. As we discussed, there was indeed an internal communications and ticketing glitch on our end relative to the tickets your organization was provided to for these games during our Hockey Heritage Weekend. Your guests who received tickets to these games should know that the unfortunate error should not be a negative reflection on The Epilepsy Center. We take full responsibility for the mistake and apologize for any inconvenience that you or your guests experienced on either of these two nights. We will continue to work hard on our end to rectify this issue to alleviate the problem from hopefully not recurring again in the future to your organization or any organization. Your patience and understanding in allowing me to get a better grasp on this hand as to what happened over the weekend is greatly appreciated.” We hope this brings some light to the situation that had occurred. Thank you Roy J. Cherry, CEO The Epilepsy Center of Northwest Ohio ... See more
