Target Audience: OIS-Parent is only for parents and other family members supporting children and adults who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities in the home setting. Non-family members who are paid to provide supports in the home, whether they are personal support workers (PSWs), other paid in-home support providers, or agency staff working in the family home, are not eligible to attend OIS-P training, as OIS-G Level Certification is required for them.
