Direct Supports Training

The Oregon DD Coalition provides information on current trainings for people who support individuals with developmental disabilities, including direct support providers, family members, self advocates and related professionals.

We want to provide cost-effective opportunities for you to get support, motivation and instruction. We also want to connect you to opportunities to network, problem-solve and share best practices. We invite you to participate in trainings about providing supports in ways that enhance the lives of the people you are working for, and enhance your own life and opportunities. When providers, self advocates and family members are secure, skilled, and happy, support is more successful. Our goal is to help you achieve this!

We will continue to share trainings on topics specific to disabilities and related best practices, time-saving and enjoyable paths to healthy lives, how to access resources in the community, and much, much more!
