The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) is committed to providing FREE training that improves the lives of participants of Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waivers. Please use as many training resources as you see fit.
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.

DHHS has a monthly discussion on the first Tuesday of each month Zoom at 3:00 PM, CT, led by Amy Callendar-Taft, a Service Coordinator and CTLC Ambassador.
Anyone can attend, whether you struggle with CTLC or use the tools regularly. We want to engage participants, guardians, independent providers, and agency staff. We mainly talk about the three tools available in Therap: The Integrated Star, Life Domains, and Trajectory. We may also look at other tools in the Nexus library that you can use to plan your good life.
Sessions are open discussions about how CtLC tools work and any problems people have.
