Oregon Training and Consultation (OTAC), originally incorporated in 1984 as Oregon Technical Assistance Corporation, is a nonprofit 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) organization based in Salem, Oregon. OTAC’s internationally recognized training and technical assistance programs promote full participation in community life for people with disabilities, seniors, and their families.
An ordinary life - that’s what OTAC is all about. We help people gain the skills and supports they need to live an ordinary life. That includes meaningful work, a home of their choosing, friends, joy, belonging, choices, hobbies and other common, everyday experiences available to most people.
We use person-centered strategies that emphasize opportunity, self-determination and inclusion. We work with entire systems as well as professionals, individuals and their families, always maintaining a commitment to the whole person.
OTAC has a long, rich history of being on the front lines of creating positive change. Through our work with numerous agencies, organizations, professionals, families, and individuals, we strive to build a better future for all Oregonians who experience disabilities.
