As we work to put the measures in plain language lets all try to avoid or minimize use of abbreviations and acronyms that create needless barriers for people not familiar with the abbreviations from understanding what is being talked about. Also other people from other systems and policymakers - never mind individuals and families of people with developmental disabilities often don't know what the abbreviations and acronyms mean.

Would it be possible to list on the Measures another column after Phase 4 that discusses our "stretch goals" than Nancy referred to earlier? For example, in our Early Start Measure for Timely Access to Early Start Services, we're measuring IFSP completion, but not actual receipt of services (which hopefully would be our stretch goal.) It's great to see that we're making sure that we're laying the foundation to achieve the goal, but it would also be great to document the stretch goal.

The concept of person-centered is a different way of thinking about providing services. Everyone involved needs to have a clear understanding of what person-centered really is. It is driven by the individual.

Chapter IV of the section on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services lists 13 components for person-centered planning.

Strongly agree with Marty on all his points!

Agree with Marty a how do ensure when this is implemented families know the process to get help when the system breaks down. Will that be the ombudsman?

I speak from Personal experience as a parent and also as an employer of neurodiverse individuals - the SSI being affected is a very real fear and almost an obstacle for the families to encourage their individuals to pursue longer hours or more work at their job - even if the employer and employee are doing well, the fear that they would lose benefits has their conservators or family members intentionally stunting any possible growth of the individual at that job

thank you Brian

I support Luan Huynh's suggestion that maybe benefits counseling with an expert should be part of the employment assistance process, so that people can understand and make informed choices (including maintaining or keeping their supports such as SSI, certain housing options that are tied to income, etc)

Thanks to everyone - and to the interpreters (both ASL and language). Amazing work.

I offer help on person centered work too

Agree with Nancy. BTW the Coordinated Family Services is really an important step - and actually also is a major way to help address our housing problems and crisis
Kavita Sreedhar
01:47:31
The coordinated Family services is a huge step - also in creating possible employment for some of our self advocates as well, how ? Some of these individuals can also support aging caregivers in certain areas - again typing as i think ( I would love to be able to share this in an offline meeting )
