One thing the interviewer  will want to know  about Carolyn is: <ul><ul><li>How often   </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>do you ...

  • Trainer Note: Introduce yourselves as a parent and person with a developmental disability and as employees of the Council. “Welcome to this orientation session on Support Needs Assessment Interviews.” “If you have a question that we can’t answer today, give us your contact information and someone will get back to you.” Judy: “Can you tell us where the bathrooms are?”

  • Cynthia: “This might seem like a lot to learn, but we will take it slow and try to make it fun.”

  • “ The interview will focus on supports you need to do things other people do. An example might be…going to work.”
  • Trainer Note: Give audience time to answer before going to next slide.
  • Trainer Note: Don’t read the bubble text.
  • The state is using interviews to learn more about individual’s support needs so that the amount of money budgeted for each person is: Sensible: The amount budgeted makes sense given the support needs Fair: Everyone with similar needs receive a similar Individual Budget Amount Person-Centered: The budget is based on what individuals (and people who know them best) say they need Portable: The Individual Budget Amount moves with you if you move.
  • Trainer Note:
  • Main point -
  • Cynthia: Remember, this is about in-home socializing, so transportation is not an issue.
  • “ For example, maybe you’ve never cooked a meal. But just imagine what support you would need to cook. Trainer Note: Pause for responses before next slide.”
  • Read first- So let’s imagine doing something else. Trainer Note: Pause for response.
  • Let’s look at an example of how the assessment measures a person’s needs.
  • Trainer Notes: “You won’t get the services you need if you aren’t honest about what you need.”
