The Ohio Waiver Network is dedicated to continual learning for all levels in the Developmental Disabilities field. 


All O.W.N. members have access to a variety of training topics for managers, D.S.P.'s, and the people we serve. We offer weekly subscriptions to training tips that all levels of management can benefit from. We also regularly partner with other organizations and D.O.D.D. to present and educate the provider community on rule or philosophy changes.
