Kudos of the Month: Happy Hands Education Center

The Happy Hands Education Center has reached out for many years to families with children who have hearing loss, impairments and communication disorders. The goal of the center is to empower children through education, confidence and the ability to achieve anything imaginable.
It is the only resource in the state for a full time and year-round specialized education for children six and under.
Happy Hands was founded by Al Proo in 1994. Proo has served the deaf community for over 30 years as a pastor and interpreter. He says, “The Happy Hands story has grown from one borrowed room in 1994 serving five children to achieving accreditation, awards, and accomplishments.”
He adds, “We have served over 500 children who are being successful in life, with many students successful in higher education and advanced training.
Happy Hands is located at 8801 S. Garnett Rd. in Broken Arrow. It is a fully accredited, licensed, audited and award-winning program. Happy Hands partners with many institutions of higher education, therapy agencies and research institutions to intern future professionals and integrate the most current scientific methods into its programs.
