A Day for Developmental Disabilities

Each year at its annual Convention, AHCA/NCAL dedicates an entire day to developmental disabilities. This year, “DD Day” will be held on Sunday, October 7th. The day is jam packed with a number of informative sessions focused on issues relevant to DD providers, including boosting worker morale, timely survey updates and preparation tips, and maintaining vocational opportunities.

One of the best things about DD Day this year is that participants will not only earn 6 CEUs, but they’ll also receive one year of FREE e-mail/phone consultations from Keynote Speaker, Dr. Tom Pomeranz. Dr. Tom Pomeranz is a nationally recognized authority, trainer, clinician and consultant in the field of services for people with disabilities. 
In his keynote address on Sunday, Dr. Pomeranz will offer information on how active treatment should be delivered to allow individuals with significant cognitive, physical and/or behavioral challenges to participate in all aspects of life, thereby having meaningful experiences. The maxim that “without a presence, there is no future” serves as the foundation for this session.

And don’t forget about the DD Hero of the Year Award presentation, where AHCA/NCAL will honor a true hero dedicated to improving the lives of those developmental individuals. That takes place on Wednesday, October 10th, during the Closing General Session.

DD Day is proudly sponsored by Mesa Vista, Inc. and the Utah Health Care Association. Not registered yet? Start here.
