Ah, It hit me like a beautiful revelation! She mentioned David Hingsburger and her experiences sounded like him and like we have experienced I remember reading his book Power Tools on a sleepless night and laughing and crying through it, and sleep returned. Your reminded me of David today, and that

s not only a compliment but an acknowledgement of my lack in understanding your perspective. I would add that overtired and stressed parents could use that more direct approach as well. I feel pampered (although there would be no way it would be safe for my daughter and me to be together. The 90's are approaching and building her life is necessary). She is happy now although COVID has had a severe impact, and alternatives are helping by staff. You are right and so helpful. Thank you and my apologies. I hope my putting you to David may suffice to prove my sincerity. We do have hope and knowledge here. Thank you and if a very old broad can ever help you, do let me know. Hanging together is our greatest strength (along with a good laugh.

In our family, our son chooses to join the PCP meeting for just a few minutes. He’s been talking with us and with trusted DSPs and his care mgr over the year, and he has indicated what he wants. The rest of the meeting is about the rest of us making his wishes operational.

the best way to sabatage a meeting is by having too many people in a meeting - nothing gets done...

Darla, one of the most wonderful lessons I learned in the process of PCP (with self-directed services operating as the the delivery system), the self-advocate indicates their causal agency. In my opinion, No one has to communicate verbally, nor does a self-advocate have to show up at a time that a team chooses and stay through an entire meeting that includes anxiety-producing paperwork.

It would be helpful to use tools and strategies that make the information visual - gather information that may become goals or could help suggest goals, and that provide visual ways for people to offer input or indicate choices. The visuals need to be more than words on a page - drawings, images, graphics, charts, etc.
Kim Humphrey
01:06:09
That is a helpful idea, J.

use magazines = picture boards, make one each year for visual aids. use a time line images - use their photo's to display them,
J. Richardson Collins (he/him/his)

Thank you, Kim. The visuals are helpful for all. Many folks who use speech, for example, experience gaps between expressive and receptive language. The visual supports processing, and may facilitate other ways of seeing the information - by the person and those providing support. I understand and think in patterns so words alone often limit my processing.

I think it would be helpful that the PCP is used for children's services. I think it would make for an easier transition to adulthood by allowing for a quicker and easier application process for Children's CMs.

Good points.

Sheril - you can e-mail me to talk about the issue of having a funded waiver slot and not services available Elizabeth.Hopkins@Maine.gov - I oversee those programs

Cheryl, I too had tremendous difficulty finding a provider with available staff. I actually recruited 5 different part time workers, and NONE of them made it through the provider training sessions, as so many of the hours of training related to congregate settings. I look forward to learning that OADS is encouraging the creation of person-specific trainings, so that more folks can work part time, just for one person.
Kim Humphrey
01:21:09
Thank you for the positive perspective.
