The annual START National Training Institute (SNTI) is provided by the Center for START Services, a non-profit, national initiative based at the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability/University Center for Excellence in Disability (UCED). The SNTI was founded in 2016 to provide a forum where START network partners from around the country learn about research findings, along with best practices and innovations associated with START programs, to improve local capacity, service outcomes, and life experiences for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD) and behavioral health needs and their families.
"Value in Us All: Advancing Inclusive Practices"
This year's theme focuses on the dignity and inclusion of service recipients and their families. Inclusive practices value the unique cultural identities, positive characteristics, hopes, and dreams of individuals and their families. Promoting an understanding of diversity and community occurs within the context of rigorous standards for effective services and supports. The 2019 SNTI will build capacity and partnerships for inclusive communities.
The 2019 SNTI will be held May 6-8, 2019 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott, 1700 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA. Attendees will have the opportunity to create a tailored learning experience by selecting breakout Sessions from five content strands:
- Strand A: Strength Based Approaches

- Strand D: Policy, Practices & Community Inclusion
