ODP Policy Team Virtual Office Hours for Individuals and Families

March 19, 2024 | by sau1admin

Pennsylvania Department of Human Services

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 <>
5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) invites individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or autism and their families to join in a virtual conversation with ODP’s policy team. The conversation will cover basics about the services ODP offers and it is an opportunity for individuals and families to ask questions. These meetings are informal, meaning the conversation will not be recorded, and rules will be set before the meeting starts to ensure everyone feels comfortable and safe to provide questions and comments. The meeting will be held through GoTo Webinar. Pre-registration is required. Click the link below to register for the session.

What Will Be Covered?
This next meeting will consist of guest speaker(s) to introduce and explain what the PA Family Network is and what it can do for individuals and family members. Following the guest speakers, policy members from ODP will provide an overview of ODP’s waiver waiting list, including the purpose of the waiting list and why one currently exists.

Please note:

This webinar/conversation is not for professionals, it is specifically for individuals, caregivers, and families and/or legal guardians.

This webinar/conversation is geared towards individuals and families who are just beginning to learn about ODP or for those who want a basic understanding of the topic being discussed.

*ODP is asking and encouraging Supports Coordinators, Administrative Entities, Individual and Family Organizations, etc. to share this invitation with any individual and family they support.
