Taft College, working with The Arc of California and the National College of Direct Support, is offering a new Associates degree - Direct Support Education. It is an all online program that can be accessed from anywhere. The goal of the DSE program is to help create a career ladder in working with individuals with disabilities.
As part of the Department of Developmental Services' (DDS) commitment to provide information to the general public, individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, and professionals in the field, DDS produces the Fact Book on an annual basis. The Fact Book presents pertinent data over a 10-year period about the individuals served by DDS, including an overview of the service delivery system and trends in California. The Fact Book contains valuable information that is helpful in better understanding California’s developmental services system and the people served.
