I think using the term "group home" could be confusing for some. Where does AFHA fall?
Pamela Scarano
51:50
Great point Carole we can then identify where there is greater success.
Eric Zigman
52:50
AFHA is Adult Family Home Agency

I wonder if the approximate 15% of PIPs leading to employment only captures if one PIP did or did not lead to a job.. PIPs can build resumes/skills and perhaps lead to employment later on in the individual's experience.
Arturo Cazares
57:50
Looking at PIP data can be challenging, as some PIPs may carry over to more than one fiscal year, a person might have multiple PIPs, and some persons are not looking for the PIP to become employment (just looking for work experience).
Pamela Scarano

WHAT DOES THE DATA TELL US?
Michael Luna
01:20:19
BASED ON THE PRESENTATIONS FROM DDS AND EDD, WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT DATA ELEMENTS THAT SHOULD BE MEASURED OVER TIME?
Nick Wavrin
01:21:43
Total population served and total estimated eligible population
Beth Burt
01:21:56
time on job, wages, participants satisfaction, employer satisfaction, types of jobs,
Arturo Cazares
01:22:10
Number/percentage of persons who do not want to work, and reason why.
Beth Burt
01:24:21
Are they self-employed? College? Other vocational program
Eric Zigman
01:24:48
Employment data (total indivduals employment, CIEs , PIPs, etc) relative to job availability and population (to understand rural vs urban, for instance); relative to size of regional center area, eventually, length of employment, some way to measuee career development
Michael Luna
01:25:02
WHAT WOULD WE WANT TO COMPARE OUR DATA WITH?
Beth Burt
01:27:32
You do not have to be 100% independent to work. You may self-employed or have supports.
Beth Burt
01:27:57
Should we track how many providers are certified in Discovery?
Mark Melanson
01:28:36
Operational definitions.
Rosalinda Garcia
01:31:14
Tracking the increase/decrease in number of employer participants would also be helpful.
Eric Zigman
01:31:15
It's tricky with CA's Lanterman Act entitlement, but itt would be interesting to see how many Individuals with IDD (of total eligible/available to work).. and try to find states with lessons we can learn from. Washington comes to mind only for it's historical comittment to having the State and Counties hire individuals with IDD. Not sure if they have continued to be strong in that.. but just as an example of states that have something to teach us.
Rosalinda Garcia
01:31:40
Wages, length of employment, promotional advancement to measure success, ability to integrate independently (how long before they become independent in the work force)
Mark Melanson
01:32:34
Excellent point Alice!
Michael Luna
01:33:46
WHAT MIGHT BE INDICATORS OF SUCCESS (MORE…, INCREASED, ETC.)?
Rosalinda Garcia
01:34:48
Increase in number of those employed, a higher percentage of the total, increase number of employer participants, rate of satisfaction for both employee and employer
Arturo Cazares
01:34:51
Satisfaction with job, number of hours worked, and service provider. Opportunity for advancement.
Sara Murphy
01:35:23
Increased wages or hours worked, career growth, jobs with benefits
Carole Watilo
01:36:50
increased numbers of individuals in work, retention, increased percentage moving from PIP to CIE. We also need to be able to use any data to make changes
Carole Watilo
01:37:20
there are also suggestions in the q&A
Carole Watilo
01:38:10

Amy Wall
01:38:11
