Important Information

Upcoming Webinars:

IMPORTANT:  Direct Support Person Course Coordinator (DSP), Human Rights Committee Chairperson (HRC) and Residential Director Core (RDC) trainings are being revised and will not be offered until 2019. 

IMPORTANT: (Updated 03/19) The New Provider Orientation Training has been temporarily suspended at this time. The Division of Developmental Disabilities and the Department of Human Services are reviewing the current training curriculum and there are no plans in the near future for an Orientation. As soon as we have determined the new training to be ready, and approval has been granted, an announcement would be posted on the DHS/DDD website when that will occur. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.  Details to follow
