Join us online for webinar about the Self-Direction Option for Waiver Services!
Self-DirectionSelf-Direction gives waiver participants the control to choose the people that they want to provide supports to them and in some cases, the ability to provide higher wages for their Direct Support Professionals (DSP).  However, Self-Direction also comes with more responsibility.  The goal of this training is to help individuals decide if self-direction is something they want to pursue and how to make it happen.
