Overview

The Developmental Services Worker program will reflect best field practices, provide current and relevant knowledge, and address up-to-date issues to give you a strong foundation for the field of intellectual disabilities. Its approach is guided by years of study and work in the field and by personal relationships with people with intellectual disabilities.

Through in-class, hands-on practice (projects, seminars, community observations, Internet searches, teamwork and electronic communication) and two field placements, you’ll cover a wide range of relevant topics. Among them will be: life experiences of those with intellectual disabilities, the nature of intellectual disabilities, values clarification, effecting positive change, communication and teamwork, and personal support requirements and techniques.

Note: This program is taught using a combination of modalities. Courses may be taught face-to-face, online or in blended/hybrid combination of both online and traditional classroom teaching
