Program Description

Developmental services workers use leadership qualities and creative problem solving to facilitate natural supports, generic services, self-reliant decision making, and personal control for individuals of all ages who have a range of developmental and/or physical disabilities or mental disorders and their families in various work and community environments. Graduates recognize that barriers exist for people with challenges and that they have a role in facilitating the removal of such barriers.
