Take a Stand - Speak Up! Annual RefresherOMNEAN
Required annually for residential and day service providers in Arizona.
This abuse and neglect course is not only about recognizing and reporting but a call to action. In this class the student will learn about the harsh realities of abuse, neglect and exploitation for people with developmental disabilities. Statistics are provided that will leave the learner shocked at the prevalence of abuse amongst the people we support. Photographs that depict the results of mistreatment leave the learner with no other option but to commit to take a stand and speak up. The class provides you with practical tools and tips on how to respect a person’s space even when more personal support is necessary. You will gain an understanding about the importance of recognizing behavioral patterns that not only suggest physical abuse but environmental and emotional as well. After completing the course the Direct Support Professional is inspired to make it known that the people they support are safe in their presence!

I think it would be beneficial if you would allow people to see the questions we missed. This would better help me with my understanding of the question and answer if I'm able to see where I have made a mistake and how I can make sure it's corrected later.

The Lessons were eye-openers...especially to DSP's that have been engaging in such acts and omissions due to lack of insight.
