The Department on Disability Services Training Institute (DDSTI) coordinates training programs and activities for DDS employees, including senior executives, middle managers, supervisors, and front line employees. DDS also provides resources and specific agency training needs in partnership with universities, vendors, and other local training institutions.
The DDSTI offers a four-tiered curriculum to those that provide services to persons served by the Developmental Disability Administration (DDA). The curriculum is designed to build conceptual understanding of best practices while using person centered thinking tools to gain a deeper understanding of the people we support.
The four tiers are:
- Employee Orientation
- Specialized Training
- Core Training
- Enhanced Training
