WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Therap Services will host its
2nd conference for Direct Support Professionals from December 5-7, 2007 in
Southbury, Connecticut. The 2nd Direct Support Professionals conference
will aim at enhancing skills of Direct Support Professionals who are daily
users of Therap as well as providing an open platform for interaction
between Therap's users and its developers and support staff.
The conference is free of charge for Direct Support Professionals as
Therap users. Therap believes that Direct Support Professionals are an
integral part of care-giving agencies as they work directly with persons
with disabilities. Therap strives to ensure maximum participation by Direct
Support Professionals at conferences and workshops so that they can take
part in improving and designing the documentation and reporting process.
"The 2nd DSP conference will provide a host of opportunities for Direct
Support Professionals to learn more about Therap applications and interact
with other Direct Support Professionals who are Therap users," said Justin
Brockie, Director of Customer Support and Training.
One of the special features of the 2nd Direct Support Professionals
conference will be a presentation and discussion session by users of Therap
applications. Therap users are expected to make presentations on their
knowledge and experience in using the Therap system. Therap presenters
include Kara Blevins and Maureen Noonan, two experienced developmental
disability industry clinicians, who themselves were Direct Support
Professionals. Among the many presenters, Kate Ramlow from Catholic
Community Services/Community Living Program and Karen Ennis from the Arc of
Somerset are expected to present. Some of the topics include "Using Therap
