“Getting Connected to the Community” Training Available

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is offering training designed for teams of people with disabilities who utilize the CPS service, their family members, provider staff, and SCs. Teams sit together and work together as a small group throughout a three-hour training. They are encouraged to brainstorm, network, and share ideas to explore new directions, ask new questions, and seek new information.

Provider agencies are invited to host this training at their local sites. Representatives of Tuscarora Intermediate Unit will work with the provider agency to schedule the training on a date and time that work for the individuals supported by ODP programs, families, support teams, agency staff, and agency trainers. The training is designed for a maximum of 30 participants. The provider agency would supply the training room (a space to hold a maximum of 30 people working in small groups). The trainers bring all of the training equipment and supplies.

The exact start and end times of the three-hour training will vary based on the needs of the participants and availability of the trainers. All participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the training. ODP Announcement 19-049 provides additional information regarding this opportunity.

If you are interested in hosting this training at your agency or have any questions, please send to this email. You can also call Jeff Wheeler at 800-446-5607 ext. 6881 or 412-826-6881, or Melissa Mecke at 717-901-2164.
