This participant's manual covers the fourth module of a four-module training program for all individuals employed in programs funded by Oklahoma's Developmental Disabilities Services Division. This includes van drivers, recreation workers, residential staff, administrators, case managers, secretarial/clerical staff, vocational staff, advocates, physicians, psychologists, and others. The primary objective of the module is to have the participant understand future trends, both technological and environmental, influencing the delivery of services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Secondary objectives include discussing influences on the policies of the State of Oklahoma in the provision of services to individuals with developmental disabilities, listing areas in which the power of self-advocacy is important, describing the role of the State in relation to supporting families, and listing technological advances that aid individuals with disabilities in achieving greater independence. The module includes the primary and secondary objectives, a text and question format that allows participants to become actively involved in the learning process, information from transparencies used in training, and copies of handouts.
