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.
