The College of Direct Support (CDS) and Therap Services continue their successful series of joint training conferences with the fourth one – “Side-by-Side Technology: Therap, CDS Training Conference IV” – in Indianapolis, IN on Oct. 20-22 at the Holiday Inn North at The Pyramids.
The very first CDS-Therap conference was held in Kansas City just more than a year ago.

This conference again brings together two industry leaders in the field of utilizing web-based technology to support people with developmental disabilities and educating and training a workforce to deliver the support services. The two separate and yet distinct companies will discuss the “bridge” that allows users to access Therap’s services and bridge to the CDS via the Learning Management System offered by MCStrategies/Elsevier.
This conference will also feature an address by Dr. Amy Hewitt, Senior Research Associate at the Institute on Community Integration. She will be presenting on the use of technology and workforce transformation. Dr. Hewitt coordinates the authoring of the CDS curriculum at the University of Minnesota’s Institute on Community Integration.
There is an early bird registration fee of $150 per person available for the three-day conference and that also covers all meals.
Therap Services, LLC, based in Waterbury, CT, is a web-based service organization that provides an integrated solution for documentation and communication needs of agencies providing support to people with disabilities, especially developmental disabilities. It offers an easy and efficient alternative to the immense amount of paperwork that is done manually by the care providers.
CDS is an online curriculum delivered by a Learning Management System and is being used across the country to develop, educate and build careers for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs). CDS is a collaborative work of the University of Minnesota and Elsevier/MC Strategies. CDS is headquartered in Knoxville, TN, and its curriculum is developed by the Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota.
