Only some regional centers provide an increased rate for early intervention services that are bilingual. Shouldn't there be a bilingual rate in all regional centers?

Other then the Workforce Survey which all agencies could participate in, what is the percentage of programs that will be able to receive additional incentives through the measures that will roll out this year?
Tania Morawiec (Mor-ah-a wic)
some retention programs create career laddering to support retention via advancement opportunities-is there any pathway option linked to concurrent initiatives? Ex-DSP moving into an employment specialist position that might pay more and demands an expanded skill set? This also helps establish cross-training tied employment supports that do apply to residential and ADL services
Mike Pereira
Thank you for the Desired Outcomes for Workforce Capacity- certainly it is aligned with components of the HCBS Staff Stability Survey that some providers were able to complete, which gives a baseline of sorts for those measures. That said, and it has been shared in this workgroup and other discussions is whether Turnover Rate and Retention Rate are the best or most appropriate measures of Program Quality... certainly Participant Satisfaction is a (one) measure that could better equate quality of service- just because a person stays with an organization longer, doesn't necessarily mean that they are a "quality" staff... and also- there are legitimate reasons for staff turnover. Turnover rate isn't necessarily a like for like barometer for quality service
Pete Cervinka, DDS
Thanks Mike. We agree. This is a start to iterate from, based upon some baseline info.
