The purpose of Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) Announcement 21-015 is to inform supports coordination organizations (SCOs) enrolled to provide services through the Adult Autism Waiver (AAW) of a new orientation curriculum on MyODP. ODP has developed an updated orientation curriculum for new supports coordinators (SCs) and SC supervisors who work with AAW participants. This orientation replaces the SC101 and SC102 orientation trainings that were previously required.
Starting on February 1, 2021, new SCs must complete the updated AAW SC Orientation within 30 days of hire and before they work independently with an individual or an individual’s family. If an SC supervisor provides SC services independently for an individual or an individual’s family, the SC supervisor must complete the updated AAW SC Orientation within 30 days of hire and before they work independently with an individual or an individual’s family.
The new AAW SC Orientation can be reached at MyODP by following this chain: MyODP > Training > Autism Training > Adult Autism Programs (AAW/ACAP) > Supports Coordination Trainings. Users who do not have an account with MyODP will need to create one. This page can be viewed by the public. However, the SC or SC supervisor completing the SC Orientation needs to be logged in as their role in order to obtain verification of completion and training certificates.
ODP will release additional specifics on the AAW SC Orientation in the future. Please direct any questions about this announcement to this contact.
