Accreditation Materials

The NADP Professional Standards Framework

The NADP Professional Standards Framework encompasses all aspects that make up the process by which Disability Practitioners (DPs) can demonstrate that they meet the required standards for NADP Individual Accreditation, as Accredited or Senior Accredited Member. This includes:

  • the core dimensions and elements of the DPs role and practice
  • a set of criteria against which DPs can be measured to ascertain they meet the required standards
  • the means by which DPs can provide appropriate evidence to enable measurement against the criteria
  • appropriate quality systems to enable fair and equitable reviewing and decision-making
  • a variety of information and guidance to support those applying for accreditation

Registration Form

The registration form for both 2022 cohorts (January and May starts) will be available from 1st November 2021. However, please look through the materials and start drafting now. The assessment will not change and it will ensure that you can complete accreditation in the time.
