Become an SSP Today


The success of providing these SSP services had always depended on the work of our workers and guides to make it possible for the delegates who were deaf-blind to work and socialize in an unfamiliar environment.  Once you become an SSP the duties and responsibilities will give ways for you to rise to a greater professional status. This will in turn help make it possible to set up programs and SSP services for people who are deaf-blind in your home communities and possibly areas outside of the Oklahoma City Metro.
