 Free Provider Development Training by DODD/OADSP

The Ohio Alliance of Direct Support Professionals and the Ohio Department of Developmentally Disabilites have partnered to offer a series of training modules FREE of charge to providers through the nationally accredited, provider developed DSPaths program! These trainings work well for both direct support staff and supervisors. Please see descriptions below:

Session 1: Advanced Teaching Strategies, Part 1

9:30am- 12:30pm

This class focuses on the skill of the student in his or her role of teacher on individuals with developmental disabilities.  This class emphasizes the importance of knowing the preferred learning styles and communication and sensory preferences of the individual before designing teaching and learning experiences.  A focus of this class is the creation and adaptation of teaching tools which reflect the learning styles and preferences of the individual.  


Session 2: Advanced Teaching Strategies, Part 2

 1:30pm - 4:30pm

This second teaching strategies class focuses on teaching skills such as how to complete a procedural task analysis and flow chart prior to teaching a new skill and understanding of the usage of a prompting hierarchy with a discussion about the importance of a prompt fading plan.  In this class students will investigate techniques they may use to ensure individuals generalize the skills they have been taught.  Students also will explore techniques to evaluate their own teaching effectiveness.
