Is it 21 or 22 that student will age out?

01:13:14
Also my name is Karen not sure why it logged me in under my son name
Therese Curran
01:13:32
Hi Karen, It depends on the IEP team
Linus
01:14:16
What is the typical turnover in direct support personnel at your agency (Kie and Kim), and how does it compare with self directed supports?
Joseph Jr.
01:14:20
Thank you
Therese Curran
01:15:36
Hi Linus, I will ask them.
Jane Slade- RIDE
01:20:22
Is 24-hour support available to those persons who participate in shared living?
Kie O'Donnell (he/him) The Fogarty Center
01:20:41
Linus GREAT question! In our Day and Employment Services has been about 15% in the past three years. As Self-Directed Supports vary from person-to-person can't provide a specific number. The pandemic has changed things but never the dedication of essential supports who feel valued and are paired with participants that have similar interests as themselves.
Rachel Morgan
01:21:52
Jane - Yes Shared living is a 24 hour service. Depending on a persons needs and abilities they can spend time alone.. or not.
Susan Hayward
01:22:19
Shared living is similar to 24 hour support although in a setting with an individual or family interested in sharing their life and home
Steve Morse
01:26:02
What percent of the individuals you support are competitively employed?
Jane Slade- RIDE
01:26:03
What is the percentage of individuals who are competitively employed at each of the agencies?
Kie O'Donnell (he/him) The Fogarty Center
01:27:57
Of those in Day and Employment Services: 35% successfully employed, 85% engaged in some employment pathway (including all age groups).
Jane Slade- RIDE
01:28:06
Sorry for the duplication- Steve and I had the same question :)

How do you work with a student who has already had multiple community based work experiences, Discovery, etc. when enrolled in school?
Jean Quigley
01:49:40
For a referral to be made to an agency, does the ISP need to completed before hand ?
Kim Einloth
01:53:29
Perspectives is using transformation funds for career pathing for our direct support workforce. We are piloting credentialing DSPs and providing bonuses/increased pay as an incentive.

Kie O'Donnell (he/him) The Fogarty Center
01:55:25
Please stress when referring that valuable school information (like work trials and assessments other than an IEP) are included as it gives the youth and their family control, while adult providers the insight on how to craft a good fit.
Kie O'Donnell (he/him) The Fogarty Center
01:56:57
FEAT (Family Employment Awareness Training) from the Sherlock Center is also a valuable resource to tap into to get perspective of families (just like you) who have valid concerns and questions for such a critical time for their loved ones.
Jane Slade- RIDE
01:58:12
If a student has chosen a provider before a student graduates, I would highly suggest the provider be invited and attend any IEP or transition meetings.
Kie O'Donnell (he/him) The Fogarty Center
02:00:51
Great point @Jane!
Kim Einloth
02:01:15
Agreed!
Joseph Jr.
02:02:02

what kind of activities take place at typical day service
Christine Yankee - Goodwill SNE
02:07:22
I agree with Kie and Kim, over the last two year technology has really changed the way services can be provided
Joseph Jr.
02:08:10
Yes Therese :-)
Kim Einloth
02:09:54
Community mapping involves not only finding activities that exist but also building the ones that don't exist that will benefit the community.
Kie O'Donnell (he/him) The Fogarty Center
02:10:00
The power of faith communities and social capital is huge with understanding the power of choice
Joseph Jr.
02:10:04
