College of Direct Support - Wisconsin Pilot

The College of Direct Support (CDS) Wisconsin Pilot Project began in 2008 with the goal of providing Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) with training that would help people with developmental disabilities have stable, well-trained, competent and confident DSPs. This pilot project is a collaboration of the Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Waisman Center and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Center for Career Development and Employability Training (CCDET). This team initiated a Direct Service Workforce Training Initiative using CDS.

For more information, please see the Evaluation Brief (PDF) or visit the College of Direct Support.
