Multi-Cultural Education

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) hosts periodic multi-cultural training events open to DDS and private provider employees. These event provide an opportunity to listen and participate in open discussions focusing on cultural considerations and awareness in providing supports and services. Studies have shown that organizations that provide effective, culturally appropriate services to consumers and families employ staff that have mastered culturally sensitive attitudes, skills, and behaviors.
