Preview of Keynote Speakers:
 
1.  Frank Pastizzo (Thursday morning opening keynote):  Warm up the Workplace!  C.H.E.R.I.S.H.

 

Frank presents keynote addresses and powerful team building and leadership coaching to companies, health facilities, schools, factories, governmental organizations, banks and many different associations nationwide. After presenting at state, regional and national conferences, Frank is often immediately invited to present his morale-building and humanizing seminars to individual companies.
Seeing all services as human services, Mr. Pastizzo draws upon over thirty years of experience as an Emergency Room Technician, a high school English and Drama and Special Education Teacher, a Health Care Administrator, Marketing Executive, Professional Actor, Comic, and Musician. His energetic programs are sparked with comedy, live music, and poignant stories from the arenas of business, health care, and education to assist our workplaces in reflecting the values of kindness and respect.
2.  Joseph Macbeth (Thursday afternoon keynote):   "Tales from the Road: The Emerging Roles and Changing Expectations of the Direct Support Workforce" 
 
 
This keynote offers a chance to reflect on what we've learned from being "on the road" with our nation's direct support professionals.  We will also reflect on the changes coming to our system that are driven by funders, families and people with disabilities and how service organizations need to adopt some continuous quality improvement practices in their development of direct support. The focus of this session addresses some of the issues that direct support professionals across the country are telling NADSP about their work, what they need to be successful and offer suggestions that promote the notion that "Quality is defined at the point of interaction". Macbeth will share some stories from the road, and some "uncomfortable truths" to make you consider things a little differently.

3.  John Raffaele (Friday morning keynote prior to DSP celebration):  "The NADSP Code of Ethics Encounter” 

John Raffaele will share real examples culled from decades of practicing in the field of intellectual disabilities in a role play, unlike any other. In learning about ethical responsibilities, he will act out some real dilemmas and ethical decisions that confront direct support professionals on the job every day. Using the NADSP's Code of Ethics, participants will consider ways that ethical practices can be incorporated into daily practice. The beliefs and attitudes that are associated with being an effective human service professional are critical to understanding this code - it is not the handbook of the profession, but rather a roadmap to assist us in staying the course of securing freedom, justice, and equality for all. 





   




Dining Options: Louisville has many options for great food, but there is also a wonderful restaurant right in the hotel, Charr'd Bourbon Kitchen if you’d like to stay close. We will also have options at the registration table for you to join others for group dinners if you prefer to go out.


Full Conference Schedule Will Be Announced Soon!
