NADD Conference – DSP Scholarship

NADD’s  Conference Scholarship Opportunity for Direct Support Professionals

NADD is committed to improving the workforce of Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) who are outstanding in supporting people in our communities with intellectual/developmental disabilities and mental health needs.  In appreciation of these hard working and committed DSPs,  NADD is supporting an annual scholarship opportunity. The 3 winning DSPs will each receive a free full conference registration for the annual NADD 32nd Annual Conference & Exhibit Show November 18-20, 2015 in San Francisco, CA.

This scholarship is open to any DSP in good standing who supports individuals with developmental/intellectual disabilities and mental health needs, and would benefit from an opportunity to advance his/her involvement and knowledge in the field by attending the NADD 32nd Annual Conference.
