This book is a concise practical guide for programs involved in developing, implementing, and evaluating personal support plans. The emphasis is on basing the development of these plans on good information. The results of assessments using the SIS--A™ and the SIS--C™ can be used to develop personal support plans with this approach.
The steps involved in developing personal support plans using the systematic approach are described in detail, including each of the components and implementation steps. These involve: understanding the person; understanding the person’s support needs; developing, implementing, and reviewing the plan; and evaluating the outcomes. The last section of the book presents four exhibits provided by organizations that have incorporated one or more of the components and implementation steps in their programs.
