PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:  Those who have developmental disabilities, just like those who do not, desire to live full and meaningful lives. However, their life circumstances often require them to receive support from professionals to help them do so. Our certificate helps prepare you for this life-affirming work by focusing on knowledge and skills central to effectively working with those who have developmental disabilities. As with our Human Services AAS degree, you will receive hands-on expertise with agencies that serve the developmentally disabled including field trips, volunteer oppertunities and internship placements.
