WELCOME!

Established in 2020, the Disability Thrive Initiative provides statewide training, support and resources on how to deliver and access alternative services for Californians with developmental disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Initiative will develop and share resources to help the disability community navigate the challenges of the current public health crisis. Through free webinars, peer-to-peer consultations and trainings, and a resource library, the Initiative will provide innovative, real-world examples of how to safely address the needs of individuals with IDD. Together, we can thrive!

The Disability Thrive Initiative is presented by the California Disability Services Association and Easterseals of Southern California, in collaboration with the State Council on Developmental Disabilities, The Arc of California and California Alliance for Leadership and Education. The initiative is generously funded by the California Department of Developmental Services and San Diego Regional Center.

Empowering People with Disabilities to Make Informed Life Decisions

Thriving during a pandemic is all about balancing risk and priorities.

Join the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals for a training and panel discussion on the Informed Decision-Making process to learn:

  • Why having choice is important for people with disabilities, even with risk involved
  • The vital role of direct support professionals and family caregivers in supporting choice
  • How to empower personal decisions, such as alternative services and COVID-19 vaccination
