Planning Services - Your Service
Coordinator helps plan your services. Planning occurs at
Individual Support Plan (ISP) Team - You decide who
is on your ISP team. It must include you, your Service Coordinator, and
any developmental disabilities providers you get services from. If you have a
guardian, he or she is also on the team. You can invite other family,
friends, or organizations who support you.
Individual Support Plan (ISP) Meeting - This meeting
is with your ISP team. There are at least two meetings each year.
Your "annual ISP" is the main planning
meeting. Other meetings discuss your progress toward
your goals. If your services and supports are not meeting your needs, any team
member can call your Service Coordinator to request a meeting at any time. Before
your annual ISP meeting, your coordinator talks with you about your needs
and what types of services and supports are available to you.
Therap Access - If
you are a participant or guardian you can have access to Therap, the electronic
case management system.
Wait List - Being eligible does not mean you
will receive funding for services right away. There is not
currently enough funds available for all requests. Once eligible,
you will be placed on the wait list by your date of application.
Services will be offered when funding becomes available.
