    People with dual diagnosis are at risk for further health problems and may take many medications. Medications are often prescribed and then changed repeatedly due to incomplete diagnostic information. Communication challenges can affect a person’s ability to report their effectiveness. This webinar will review considerations for the use of medication, including the role of the DSP in advocating for a person with co-occurring disorders during prescribing, planning, treatment, and recovery.

    A significant barrier to effective, meaningful supports for people with IDD is the separation of services. This can occur across systems, in the community, and within the person’s own support team. The Direct Support Professional has a critical role in helping an individual coordinate behavior, mental health, medical, and other support needs by facilitating communication and coordinating with other professionals. This webinar will explore how collaboration and teamwork can address barriers to supports by placing individuals at the center of his or her plan and decisions.

    Add this to Calendar

    The 18th Annual NADD State of Ohio MI/ID Conference will be held September 14-16, 2020.

    NADD Members: $115
    Non-Members: $140

    NADD is first and foremost committed to the health and safety of our extended community, and in keeping with these values we have decided to transition our 2020 Ohio Conference into a digital event. While we would much prefer to be physically together, these times are such that we must err on the side of caution and safety.

    We are excited about the opportunities for learning and community that a virtual conference platform will afford us, and we are transforming our program and processes to ensure this year's conference encompasses all the robust and engaging content NADD is known for.
