    • a person’s support needs.
    • This is done during
    • an interview .
  • What is an interview?
    • An interview is a meeting
    • where a person asks you
    • lots of questions.
  • The assessment interview measures your support needs … by asking you and other people you know some questions. What do you need?
    • “ Support” means the help you need to do something successfully.
    What does “support” mean?

    • some examples?
    JIM AL
  • Here are some more examples:

    AL JIM
  • 2. Why is Oregon doing these interviews?
    • Because Oregon wants a fair way to
    • measure everyone’s support needs.
    • Everyone is asked
    • the same questions ,
    • so everyone is treated fairly.
    Wherever you live in Oregon, you will get the same questions.
  • The state wants to make sure the amounts of support and funding people receive are:
    • Sensible
    • Fair
    • Person Centered
    • Portable – your
    • budget moves
    • if you move
  • 3. Who will get an interview?
  • Over the next 5 years…
    • All adults living in - or moving into - group homes or Supported Living programs…
    • … will get an interview.
    • If you decide not to be interviewed, you must choose someone who knows you well to answer the questions for you .
    What if I don’t want to be interviewed? My friend asked me to answer for her.
    • Think about who you would like to have answer questions with you or for you.
    • (These are just examples.)
    Mom? Friend? Advocate? Brother?
    • The person you choose must know you for at least 3 months.
    She or he must know you well and know what you need . I’m glad you’re are.
  • How often will I have an interview?
    • When BIG changes
    • happen in your life
      • OR
      • every 5 years.
  • 4. Who will be at my interview?
  • The people at your interview will include:
    • The Interviewer
    • You or someone you choose to represent you
    • And usually about 5 other people who know you
    • These will be people who can help answer questions about you, such as:
      • 1 – 2 staff from your home
      • 1 – 2 staff from your work or day program
      • a legal guardian, family member or advocate
      • your case manager or service coordinator
    I can answer questions, too.
    • Together, you all meet with the interviewer.
    Let’s begin the interview.
  • Who is the interviewer?
    • A person who is trained and experienced
    • to do interviews and ask
    • you questions.
    Training Notebook Interviewer
  • What will the interviewer do?
    • Explain the interview process.
    • Ask you the interview questions.
    • Write down your answers on a computer.
    What do you need? Interviewer
  • What else will the interviewer do?
    • The interviewer will help the group reach agreement about the supports you need.
  • 5. What kind of questions will we be asked?
    • You will be asked about your
    • support needs in areas such as:
    • Home Life
    • Community Life
    • Lifelong Learning
    • Work Life
    • Social Life
    • Health & Safety
    • Money Matters
    • Self Advocacy
  • For each area, you will be asked:
    • what type of support you need,
    • how often you need support, and
    • how much support you need.
    • 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?
  • 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?
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • For example, if you don’t cook, you might be asked: “ What support would you need if you did cook ?”
  • 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?
  • It measures
    • how often you would need support to cook a meal in your kitchen.
  • 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?
    • 2. The interview measures how much support you would need to do your job.
  • The interviewer will also ask about personal things like
    • going to the bathroom,
    • your friendships,
    • and your relationships.
    • What if I feel uncomfortable talking about personal things?
    Tell the interviewer!
    • The interview
    • sounds hard!
    Remember, it’s not a test . There are no right or wrong answers.
    • BUT you and your team MUST answer ALL
    • the questions,
    • even if it feels hard to admit what you need.
  • Now let’s see how this works with a real person !!
  • Meet Carolyn.
    • Carolyn is a person with a disability who needs help during meals.
  • One thing the interviewer will want to know about Carolyn is:
      • How often
      • do you need help
      • during meals
      • each day?
  • Carolyn eats 4 meals each day and needs help every time she eats.
  • The interviewer will ask Carolyn:
    • How much support time
    • do you need
    • when you eat?
  • Carolyn spends about 30 minutes eating each meal.
  • 4 half-hour meals = 2 hours each day.
  • What else will Carolyn be asked?
      • What type
      • of support
      • do you need?
    The interviewer will ask:
  • During meals, Carolyn needs someone to cut her food and stay close by in case she chokes.
    • So the interviewer learns
    • that Carolyn needs:
        • someone close by
        • for two hours
        • each day
        • to assist her with meals.
  • 7. How will my information be used?
    • What is learned about
    • your support needs
    • will help set a budget
    • for your services.
  • This budget will be called your I ndividual B udget A mount…or IBA
  • 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!
    • Oh…so answering all the questions means getting the
    • right supports?
    Yes!
  • SO…BE HONEST! The only way to get the services I need is to be honest about what I need.
