College of Direct Support – Internet-based College for Direct Support Professionals

We’re proud to be the first Canadian organization to be partnered with the College of Direct Support, an internet-based college that provides higher education for front-line staff. The additional tools and education provided by the College of Direct Support allows our staff to stay informed and educated, with the best practices and policies for serving the people we support. The College of Direct Support was developed by the University of Minnesota Institute on Community Integration and provides carefully designed training in the areas that have been identified as most important in the work done by Direct Support Professionals across disabilities.

In addition to being the first Canadian organization to partner with the College of Direct Support, the Developmental Disabilities Association has also been featured in the College of Direct Support Partner Profile under their December 2009 newsletter.
