*Note change in topic and presenter.
Congratulations to our original February presenter, Reyma McCoy McDeid, former Executive Director of Central Iowa Center for Independent Living, who was appointed by the Biden/Harris administration on January 20, 2021 to be the new Commissioner of the Administration on Disabilities and Director of the Independent Living Administration.
As of February 1, 2021 the new Day Habilitation Rules went into effect that now allow for a clearer pathway to employment and include activities to assist members to participate in the community, develop social roles and relationships, and increase independence and the potential for employment. LeAnn Moskowitz, LTSS Policy Specialist with IME, will provide another quick review of the rule changes, as well as talk to us about how this might impact practice and service implementation, and will open it up for 'Q & A'.
If you have any specific questions right now, go ahead and submit those to Jess Kreho at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will incorporate them into the session content. You will also have an opportunity to share your questions and comments during the live webinar as well.
