Moving From Crisis To Stabilization

Feb 1, 2019 | Reports

As the long-term care service system grows and evolves, policy makers and systems stakeholders must determine what strategic investments will lead to the sustainability of supporting people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. ‘Moving from Crisis to Stabilization: The Case for Professionalizing the Direct Support Workforce Through Credentialing’ provides a blueprint for how a national credentialing standard will positively transform the I/DD service delivery system. This report was produced by the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP), the National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities (NLCDD) and Community Bridges Consulting Group.
