PROVIDER COMPLIANCE

We believe in win-win relationships with our provider partners to cultivate a strong, diverse network that offers support and opportunities to the people we both serve.

 

As Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), our provider partners are the backbone of the developmental disabilities system. Whether it is through an agency or as a self-employed independent provider, these dedicated individuals make a difference in the lives of those they support every day. Below you will find more information about Miami County's network of provider partners, the role they play and how you can join their team. For more information about agency providers, please visit dspohio.org; for those interested in serving as an independent provider, please contact our Provider Referral & Linkage Coordinator.

Agency Providers

Agency providers employ people to provide services to people with developmental disabilities.

Provider agencies are responsible for ensuring staff complete required training and background checks. Staff must also hold a valid certification in first aid and CPR and provide specific documentation when applying for DODD certification.

Independent Providers

Self-employed, independent providers provide direct services to those with developmental disabilities.

Like agency providers, independent providers must also complete required training, background checks and certifications to be DODD certified. To help you through this process, DODD has some key suggestions to remember when applying.
