Planning, Preparedness, Response, Recovery Developmental Disabilities Services Awareness Training
Niagara University (NU) Disability Awareness Training has received a grant from the Nebraska Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCDD) to educate individuals who have a responsibility in emergency planning, preparedness, response, and recovery as it pertains to individuals with disabilities and access and functional needs.
The training will be offered virtually three times: June 21 morning, June 27 afternoon, and June 27 evening.
This e-learning course is designed for people with disabilities, and their families. Course modules are designed for four separate audiences to assist them to meaningfully participate in service planning. The modules are self-paced and may be used individually or shown in group settings, such as classrooms, advocacy groups, or trainings.
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Nebraska Council on Developmental Disabilities are focused on a Person-Centered Planning (PCP) initiative to reinvigorate person-centered supports for all Nebraska's HCBS Waivers.
