Stepping Up to the Promise and the Spirit of the HCBS Waiver, Part 3: Great Stories – How "Person-Centered" Plays out in Real Life

July 1, 2015 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Eastern Standard Time

Co-hosted with
TASH

Description

The 2014 Home and Community-Based Services Waiver (HCBS) regulations hold enormous potential for the way support services are provided to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These new regulations mark one step closer to the promise of the Olmstead Decision - upholding the "most integrated setting possible" standard of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act!

Person Centered services are a benchmark in the HCBS Waiver regulations in terms of how people with disabilities have autonomy and control of how they live, the supports they receive, have opportunities for meaningful work, etc. This session will articulate real-life examples of people who are doing this, how the agencies that support them have learned how to listen to them, and, in the process, are striving to provide truly Person Centered supports that work.
