We finally got our SSP (Support Service Provider) training done. If you have any personal business or activity that requires the assistance of an SSP, just contact SHEP and tell them the date and time, and they will assign an SSP to be your “eyes and ears.”
Here are some of the things an SSP can do for you:
Grocery shopping with you – read prices and labels, help you put food away when you get home
Christmas shopping with you – describe and read prices, sizes, etc.
Go to restaurant or cafeteria with you – read menu, describe all the yummy choices
Bowling or other recreational activities with you
Read your mail to you
Write checks to pay your bills (you will have to sign the checks yourself)
Interpret phone calls for you – VP or voice calls
Read the recipes to you while you cook Thanksgiving dinner
Attend church events with you – describe and interpret
Go to family gatherings with you –describe who is there and interpret
Go to social events with you – describe and interpret
Be your guide when it’s dangerous or hard to see
These are a few examples of what SSP can do for you. If you want more information, you can call, text, or email SHEP. Go to www.SHEP-ok.org and look on the Contact Us page.
SSP makes it possible for you to do the same things that hearing-sighted people can do.
There are really only two things an SSP can not do:
Call, email, or text today to schedule an SSP for your next trip to the store, doctor visit, or walk in the park. SSPs are waiting to come and work for you.
