ODP Announcement 19-045 is to inform all interested parties that the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has reorganized and updated employment-related materials on the MyODP platform. Resources, communications, and training materials related to employment are categorized by individuals and families per waiver or program, as well as by provider roles in the service system.
The employment page can be found under the “Resources” tab on the MyODP home page. ODP will update material on the web page as it continues its efforts, in accordance with the Employment First Act (62 P.S. §§ 3401-3409), to help individuals obtain competitive integrated employment.
Additionally, ODP released a second update to the Employment Service Definition Quick Guide for Intellectual Disability/Autism Waivers and Base-funded Participants originally released as part of Announcement 19-025. Please use this updated guide in place of other versions. Questions about this announcement can be forwarded via email.
