8:30 am - 9:30 am Creating Drama Free Teams That Get Results

Leading a high-trust, high-performance team that gets results is possible. It's also possible to do it without putting in more hours and working harder. Creating an ownership culture free of drama, victim mentalities, and blame assigning helps leaders leverage their most valuable asset--their team members. This interactive workshop will give you the practical skills you need to eliminate all the excuses not only from your team but every relationship today. We teach what we know, but we produce who you are so the best way to coach the drama out of your team is to become a dream coach. Great coaches and leaders are not born; they are developed. That's good news. It means we can learn the tools we can use to draw out the best in our people. You can learn these secrets too, and it's not as hard as you think.

Presented by: Dennis McIntee

9:30 am - 9:45 am Networking Break

9:45 am - 10:45 am Individuals' Rights

The rights of the people we serve are at the center of providing supports in a way that allows people to live their life in the manner they wish. DODD's Heidi Davidson, with the Office of System Support and Standards (OSSAS) will share some situations where rights might be confusing to caregivers, including when one individual's rights impact another person's rights or when there are conflicts between people?s rights and the beliefs of staff providing services. Ms. Davidson will also touch on how rights may need to be looked at differently for minors than adults. Don?t miss this chance to ask your difficult questions directly to one of DODD?s OSSAS managers.

Presented by: Heidi Davidson, DODD Office of System Support and Standards

10:45 am - 11:00 am Networking Break

11:00 am - 12:00 pm Technology in DD Services

With Ohio being a technology first state and the changes to remote support services under the waivers, many providers are interested in beginning or expanding the use of technology. However, it seems that most of the information available has been from the vendors who sell the technology.

Wood County Board of DD Superintendent, Brent Baer, and Health Supports and Provider Relations Coordinator, Carly Dauch, will share a project that Wood County has undertaken to create a technology model home. The home highlights the assistive technology that is available to support individuals and their staff. Mr. Baer and Ms. Dauch will share their thoughts on how technology can be used in both waiver and ICF-IID settings.

Presented by: Brent Baer, Superintendent, Wood County Board of DD
Carly Dauch OTD, OTR/L Health Supports and Provider Relations Coordinator, Wood County Board of DD

12:00 pm - 12:45 pm Networking Luncheon (included in your registration fee)

After a morning of learning, you've earned some time to unwind! Use this time to discuss the morning's events with fellow attendees, connect with some new friends and share best practices.

12:45 pm - 2:15 pm DODD Hot Topics

DODD Director Jeff Davis will join us to share the latest news on high priority initiatives being undertaken by the department. Currently, DODD is working on implementing rate increases for Homemaker/Personal Care, On-Site/On-Call and transportation, creating a single assessment and service plan across all settings, revising the provider certification requirements, developing ICF quality measures and more. There will be time for Q&A, so come prepared to ask Director Davis any burning questions you may have about our field.

Presented by: DODD Director Jeff Davis

2:15 pm - 2:30 pm Networking Break

2:30 pm - 4:00 pm Serving Kids with High Behavioral Needs

Governor Mike DeWine has stated that services for multi-system youth are a high priority for his administration. DODD is working with other state agencies to develop plans to address these needs. Unfortunately, there is currently a lack of providers who serve children with high behavioral needs.

During this session, Gina Kerman and Brad Wyner from Rose-Mary will share their insight into serving this challenging population. Rose-Mary serves children with high needs in both waiver settings and ICFs. Come listen to Ms. Kerman and Mr. Wyner as they share important things owners & administrators need to consider before deciding to serve children and ways to offer unique programming to multi-system youth.

Presented by: Gina Kerman, Executive Director Rose-Mary
Brad Wyner, Behavior Specialist Rose-Mary
