This health program’s curriculum will reflect best practices, current and relevant knowledge and address up-to-date issues. Helping people to fill valued social roles as a part of society, teaching and the provision of personal and educational support are among some of the skills you’ll develop.

As such, the Developmental Services Worker program will ensure you’re equipped with the critical skills and knowledge to start your career directly upon graduation.
Once you complete the Developmental Services Worker program, you’ll support individuals of all ages who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. Support can be provided to individuals in their homes, at work, in schools and to their families. Your goal as a developmental services worker will be to enhance the capacity of people with intellectual or developmental disabilities to function in all aspects of community living and to support their full inclusion in all aspects of society.

Courses may be delivered face-to-face, online, or in a blended/hybrid combination of both online and traditional classroom teaching
