PROMOTE Training Program

NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD)


PROMOTE training provides staff with the tools they need to help people with development disabilities live richer lives. Much has been learned since New York State implemented the Strategies for Crisis Intervention and Prevention (SCIP-R) program. PROMOTE encompasses the best practices developed over the past decade, along with up-to-date teaching strategies and technologies designed to effectively engage learners. Promoting a higher quality of life for people with developmental disabilities is everyone’s job. This work can often be challenging and requires staff to think on their feet. With PROMOTE training as a foundation, staff will support each other, communicate effectively, and create a culture that is built on positive relationships. Positive relationships promote richer lives!
