What if, starting today, you could no longer live independently? No freedom to make decisions about any aspect of your life. All these choices will be made for you. Sometimes they’ll be made by people who know you and love you. Sometimes they’ll be made by professionals who don’t know you at all. But they’ll make decisions for you with only your best interests in mind. Really!

After more than 25 years of providing technical assistance to YTP sites Oregon, Mike Johnson is retiring at the end of June of 2018.

 The Mission of this non-profit is as follows:

Our goal is to help the millions of parents whose children, ages 3–20, are struggling with learning and attention issues. We want to empower them to understand their children’s issues and relate to their experiences. With this knowledge, parents can make effective choices that propel their children from simply coping to truly thriving.

The new Pre-ETS data base is now available and ready for you to begin entering Pre-Ets for January 1, 2018 and beyond. 

The MI Basic training program consists of a two-day introduction to the core processes and skills utilized in MI followed by a month of time to practice those skills.  The training is completed with a one-day training to consolidate the learning and make plans for future skill development. Learners are encouraged from the start to assume responsibility for their learning and to become better stewards of their skills and their practice.

Users of the YTP Database should be aware that system updates and maintenance take place on Thursday afternoons between approximately 3:00 p.m-5:00 pm (Pacific Time).

The goal is to develop a work experience program that increases job opportunities for young people with disabilities.

The funds are available on a rolling basis from the date of the posting for the solicitation (4/25/2017) until the closing of the opportunity on 6/1/2018.
