The Great Direct Support Professional Competency Connection

October 5, 2017    3:30 PM  -  5:00 PM

The cornerstone of every profession is a standardized set of competencies with which all practitioners carry out their craft. The NADSP assisted the state of New York’s Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) in creating a standardized set of Core Competencies for direct support professionals. Since that time, we have contracted with many states and have provided dozens of training sessions across the country as provider organizations begin to understand the value of competency-based training. This session will introduce the NADSP Competency set in an engaging, thought-provoking and fun manner. The audience will break into small groups and discuss the competencies…and then the fun (and learning) begins.
