  • 33.
    • You will be asked about your

    • Home Life
    • Community Life
    • Lifelong Learning
    • Work Life
    • Social Life

  • 34. For each area, you will be asked:
    • what type of support you need,

    • how much support you need.
  • 35.
    • For example, you will be asked about
    • Socializing in the home:
    • How often do you socialize?
    • Do you need support to socialize?
    • If so, what type of support do you need?
  • 36. You will be asked about doing…
    • Paid community work:
    • What type of support would you need?
    • How often would you need support?
    • How much daily support would you need?
  • 37. One more example – you will be asked questions about
    • Taking medication:
    • How often is medication taken each day?
    • How much support do you need to take your medication?
    • How long does it take someone to help you with daily medication?
  • 38. During the interview…
    • all the participants should speak
    • and
    • all the questions must be answered… even if they don’t seem to apply
    • to you now or
    • in the future.
  • 39. For example, if you don’t cook, you might be asked: “ What support would you need if you did cook ?”
  • 40. Think about cooking in your kitchen.
    • 1. Will the interview measure how often you would need support to cook a meal?
    • 2. Will the interview measure how big your kitchen is?
    Does it measure #1 or #2?
  • 41. It measures
    • how often you would need support to cook a meal in your kitchen.
  • 42. Let’s think about having a job.
    • 1. Will the interview measure what jobs you might do?
    • 2. Will the interview measure how much support you need to do your job?
    Does it measure #1 or #2?
  • 43.
    • 2. The interview measures how much support you would need to do your job.
  • 44. The interviewer will also ask about personal things like
    • going to the bathroom,
    • your friendships,
    • and your relationships.
  • 45.
    • What if I feel uncomfortable talking about personal things?
    Tell the interviewer!
  • 46.
    • The interview
    • sounds hard!
    Remember, it’s not a test . There are no right or wrong answers.
  • 47.
    • BUT you and your team MUST answer ALL
    • the questions,
    • even if it feels hard to admit what you need.
  • 48. Now let’s see how this works with a real person !!
  • 49. Meet Carolyn.
    • Carolyn is a person with a disability who needs help during meals.
  • 50. One thing the interviewer will want to know about Carolyn is:
      • How often
      • do you need help
      • during meals
      • each day?
  • 51. Carolyn eats 4 meals each day and needs help every time she eats.
  • 52. The interviewer will ask Carolyn:
    • How much support time
    • do you need
    • when you eat?
  • 53. Carolyn spends about 30 minutes eating each meal.
  • 54. 4 half-hour meals = 2 hours each day.
  • 55. What else will Carolyn be asked?
      • What type
      • of support
      • do you need?
    The interviewer will ask:
  • 56. During meals, Carolyn needs someone to cut her food and stay close by in case she chokes.
  • 57.
    • So the interviewer learns
    • that Carolyn needs:
        • someone close by
        • for two hours
        • each day
        • to assist her with meals.
  • 58. 7. How will my information be used?
  • 59.
    • What is learned about
    • your support needs
    • will help set a budget
    • for your services.
  • 60. This budget will be called your I ndividual B udget A mount…or IBA
  • 61. Is this different from how my services are funded now?
    • Now your group home or vocational provider gets a budget.
    • In the future , you will have a budget that moves if you move.
    Yes!
  • 62.
    • Oh…so answering all the questions means getting the
    • right supports?
    Yes!
  • 63. SO…BE HONEST! The only way to get the services I need is to be honest about what I need.
