The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) is embarking on an exciting opportunity to create a training experience for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) combining the use of online learning and virtual reality. Supporting DSPs is a priority of DODD, and investing in their professional development demonstrates the important role DSPs have in the lives of Ohioans with disabilities and their families.

Whether you are a brand new DSP or an experienced one, recognizing that behavior serves as communication leads to increased observational skills, knowledge, and empathy toward those we support. In this online training module, you will hear from people with developmental disabilities, DSPs, and experts on the importance of noticing that all behavior is a form of communication.
