An Introduction to the Field of MRDD

The field of MRDD is often filled with well meaning, caring individuals who have an abundance of “heart” to share. Typically they are provided with basic technical skills such as CPR and medication distribution, but often lack guidance in “how to” work with the MRDD population. Front line staff can also lack a sense of professionalism or worse yet not identity as a professional in the field of MRDD, but rather feel as if they are a glorified babysitter. The goal of this workshop is build professional capacity as a MRDD professional by providing basic skill development in counseling/ working with the MRDD population. A professional foundation will be built around the following key concepts:
1.    Skill Development
2.    The history of the field of MRDD
3.    What is A Development Disability: From Diagnosis to the Person
4.    Industry Philosophies
       •    Self Determination
       •    Dignity of Risk
       •    Natural Consequences
       •    Client Autonomy
       •    People 1st Language
       •    Client Choice
5.    Respect and Understanding for Individuals with MRDD
6.    Where do I fit in: A Look at the MRDD Professional Community
