The NADSP E-Badge Academy: DSP Certification through Electronic Badges

 

In collaboration with the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP), The Boggs Center is hosting a webinar about ways to use credentialing as a method to address Direct Support Professional (DSP) skills and competencies, improve the quality of services, and increase the longevity of staff. The National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) firmly believes that "quality is defined at the point of interaction" and therefore the knowledge, skills and values of direct support professionals are the key to providing quality supports. This webinar will provide a brief history of NADSP's credentialing program through which the organization has attempted to measure quality and recognize DSPs across the country who provide high quality support. These efforts have led to the recent launch of the NADSP E-Badge Academy, which allows DSPs to earn electronic badges by completing NADSP accredited training, using what they've learned on the job, and submitting a description of this to NADSP. Through this, DSPs grow professionally while demonstrating practice that is consistent with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Core Competencies and the NADSP Code of Ethics.

Transition Webinar Series for Educators

 

The Boggs Center is excited to announce a Webinar Series for Educators, Transition Coordinators, and other school-based professionals on Transition to Adulthood. Throughout this series, we will de-mystify the process and break down some of the more common challenges experienced by the school team. Participants will learn specific, concrete tools to empower families and students to graduate into full, rich lives in community. Remember, it’s not just a cliff. It’s also a view of the horizon.

Please see below for detailed information on each of the topics. Please join us for one or all of this series!

Transition Series for Educators l Webinar One: Launch Pad for Success

This webinar will lay the foundation for the concepts that will be discussed throughout this series. Many school-based professionals have misconceptions about what adult services can and can’t do for students upon graduation. We will discuss both the capacities and the limitations of the existing services in New Jersey. We will highlight the importance of setting high expectations for all graduates, regardless of the severity of their disability. Lastly, we will broaden our approach from “person centered planning” to “family centered planning” to ensure that the entire family unit is supported, prepared, and empowered for a full, inclusive life after graduation.

Transition Series for Educators l Webinar Three: The Changing Landscape of Post-Secondary Options

There was a time when college was viewed as simply not an option for students with intellectual disabilities. However, due to the advocacy of students and their families, this is no longer the case. Both in New Jersey and nationally, there is a growing number of programs that provide alternate paths to a college experience for students with disabilities. This webinar will discuss this changing landscape, how to evaluate these emerging programs, and how to work with students and families to ensure a productive and appropriate post-secondary experience.

Transition Series for Educators l Webinar Four: Roadblocks in Family Partnerships - Repairing Communication in Challenging Situations

Working with families is a critical part of transition planning, but there are always some families with whom building rapport and forging collaborative relationships is simply not easy. This webinar will discuss what the transition process is often like from the parent perspective, and why they may be resistant to support, feedback, and help from the school team. We will explore how it is often the parents who are most challenging to engage that need our support the most. Participants will learn specific tools and approaches that will help repair troubled relationships and build stronger partnerships with families during this critical time of transition.

Transition Series for Educators l Webinar Five: Understanding Benefits, Trusts, and Long-term Planning

Informed family, financial, and estate planning is critical for families of individuals with disabilities. Often times, families look to the school team for guidance on these issues, and it is critical that schools can respond with informed answers. In this webinar, we will provide a road map for these critical decisions, clarify some of the common misconceptions around how disability benefits limit employment options, as well as explore the concepts of guardianship and supported decision making.
