The fwdshift program helps community service providers comply with New York State's Office for People with Development Disabilities (OPWDD) Code of Ethics and Core Competencies for direct support professionals


Providers in New York are under pressure to meet the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) transformation agenda. Some are focusing on the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals’ (NADSP) Code of Ethics. Others are focusing on the DSP Core Competencies and performance evaluations while others are gearing up to become CQL accredited. In addition, OPWDD’s PROMOTE curriculum is on the horizon and will have significant impact on New York State providers.

Fwdshift offers a comprehensive approach that meets all of these requirements. All of this is happening while we are preparing for the introduction of Managed Care and are redesigning services in anticipation of work center closures. Some providers intend to focus on these requirements one at a time. Others have multiple teams working on multiple projects simultaneously. Fwdshift offers a single comprehensive approach that addresses all of these requirements in a systematic and organized fashion. — Request More Information
