- ODP- Best Practices Standards in Behavioral Support – The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) recognizes that effective, quality behavioral support must be grounded in and informed by basic, broadly accepted knowledge and processes. We are excited to disseminate the Best Practice Standards in Behavioral Support to streamline expectations and practices for those individuals providing behavioral support in ODP programs. These standards were developed by ODP’s Unified Clinical Team consisting of representation from both the Bureau of Community Supports and the Bureau of Supports for Autism and Special Populations. The standards were drafted and disseminated to the field to gain feedback on the guidance as it relates to providing Behavioral Support Services in ODP programs. We are excited to share the final version of this document and offer additional opportunities to engage with ODP’s Unified Clinical Team during Virtual Office Hours (VOHs):Register here: https://register.gotowebinar.com/rt/7822408818569088011
