DC Coalition: Annual DSP Conference – DSPs – The District’s Rock Stars of Supports

The DC Coalition will host its annual DSP Conference at the Kellogg Conference Center located at Gallaudet University on Sept 12, 2019.

Our theme is:   DSPs – The District’s Rock Stars of Supports.

I am attaching the DRAFT version of the schedule for the big day, Thursday, September 12th at Gallaudet.2019 DSP Conference Agenda.V5

The event will feature both breakfast and lunch, 3 plenary group sessions, 12 breakout sessions, our acclaimed raffles and prizes wrap-up as well as a stand-alone CESP test prep track designed for DSPs who are ready to take the CESP exam*.

*NOTE:  We are expecting that we will have a CESP test preparation training for those who are ready to get their ACRE certification.  This prep course will be 4 – 50 minute sessions designed as a refresher those persons who are ready take the exam.  This set of 4 sessions at the DSP Conference is not for those who have no experience with customized employment; it is for persons who have completed training and are ready to take the test.  This will allow providers to get a jump on this certification and be in compliance early, but all 4 sessions are limited to 30 conference participants.  If anyone from your agency will be attending these 4 – 50 minute classes at the conference, we need their names since we will have a 30-person cap in each of the 4 sessions.

Breakfast begins at 8AM.  The speakers begin at 8:50AM and the 1st Plenary sessions starts at 9:15AM

Please plan to arrive and be ready for a day of learning, food and fun no later than 8:30AM.

Registration CLOSES on September 6th.  There are no walk-ins and we need the names of your attendees on or before 9/6/19.
