Community Connection and Collaboration with Melissa Cheplic, MPH

Webinar recorded July 22, 2020

A significant barrier to effective, meaningful supports for people with IDD is the separation of services. This can occur
across systems, in the community, and within the person’s own support team. The Direct Support Professional has a
critical role in helping an individual coordinate behavior, mental health, medical, and other support needs by facilitating
communication and coordinating with other professionals. This webinar will explore how collaboration and teamwork
can address barriers to supports by placing individuals at the center of his or her plan and decisions.
