The ability of DDS Learning and Development staff to share material has been a long standing need. This website; specifically The Trainer's Corner, can provide linkage to resources and curriculum enabling the sharing of information to the fullest extent.
"It's more than a workbook...it's a way to organize people's dreams!"
This guidebook has many uses. It supports person-centered practices, explores preferences which build on PBS or skill building with staff.
The information on this site remains the property of The Department of Developmental Services. You may use this information without further permission so long as all materials reproduced or otherwise used acknowledge the author(s). No materials may be sold for more than the cost of reproduction without the explicit consent of The Department. Where effective use of the materials requires training, do not use or support their use without the required training being provided. (For example, providing facilitator training without having successfully completed the course for facilitator trainers.) Training information can be obtained from any Regional Learning and Development Director. If materials provided are adapted, expanded, or translated, a copy of the resulting materials should be reviewed by a trainer prior to us and must be provided electronically to The Department via Valarie.Oresto@state.ma.us and may be shared at their discretion.
