Independent Providers

If you are an independent provider, you are hired by and provide services/supports for people who have developmental disabilities. You are considered self-employed but must follow very specific certification timelines, training requirements, and criteria in order to obtain and maintain certification through the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.  These requirements are outlined in the rules and laws of the Ohio Revised Code.  We have also developed step-by-step instructions for further assistance.
