The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is pleased to announce that it is releasing a number of trainings that help to explain updates to regulations affecting individuals with intellectual disabilities or autism.
The ODP Regulation Package published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on October 5, 2019, represents the most dramatic changes in the past 30 years to our service system. The trainings scheduled for October are structured to help stakeholders understand the major changes and how they impact the system. More trainings are in development on specific topics and requirements contained in the ODP Regulatory Package. ODP will send updates to this announcement as new trainings pertaining to the ODP Regulatory Package are offered.
Along with this communication, there are flyers advertising the various trainings available. Please see any attachment accompanying this announcement for specific details.
Please take advantage of the opportunity to join one of the live webinars listed below. Registration is limited to 500 people, so they ask that groups of people call in together when possible. The sessions will be recorded, so that a session for each topic is available on MyODP for those who are unable to take part in the live session.
