Promoting Meaningful Person-Centered Practices in Home and Community-Based Service Delivery
September 22 | 3:30 - 5:00 pm ET
Register for the webinar.
In person-centered home and community-based services (HCBS), people define their own needs and preferences to live their lives the way they want. However, these outcomes are not always achieved, even when person-centered policies and programs are put in place. In this webinar, panelists who receive or have received HCBS, will share their experiences with person-centered supports and services. The discussion will include topics related to rights, choice, and control and how these critical elements can be improved and fully integrated into service delivery practices. Members from the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on HCBS Person-Centered Outcomes and Measurements at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab will also present early findings from their research of best practices for person-centered HCBS delivery from interviews with people who use and deliver HCBS.
Exploring Core Competencies for Information and Assistance (I&A) Professionals in Self-Direction
October 4 | 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET
Register for the webinar.
Information and Assistance (I&A) is essential for helping participants understand self-direction, navigate their program and its rules, and have a successful experience self-directing. An underpowered I&A function can limit not only a program’s growth and participant satisfaction but also its integrity, as one of the core functions of I&A is to provide additional program monitoring and safeguards. Co-sponsored by the National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices (NCAPPS) and Applied Self-Direction (ASD), this webinar will highlight a new resource on core standards for I&A professionals in self-direction. The panel will feature people with lived experience of self-directing who will share their experiences with quality I&A professionals and how they have affected their self-direction journeys.
NCAPPS webinars include ASL interpretation, live English captions, and live Spanish interpreting. If you require any additional accommodations, please email Saska Rajcevic.
