About the series
TASH originally aired its webinar series on Person-Centered Planning and the Home and Community-Based Services Waiver twice with minor variations — first in Autumn of 2014, then again in Summer of 2015. We have combined the best of the two airings to created this composite version. This is part 6 of 7 of the combined series.

About this episode
In part 6 of 7 of this series, Lyle Romer and Jeff Strully share their perspectives on the factors most crucial to managing an agency that strives to embody the principles of person-centered planning and support.
As a result of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the difference between certainty / agreement and the measurement of outcomes in supported living.
- Define the different approaches needed to measure simple outcomes versus more complex and difficult to predict outcomes.
- Articulate the essence of the feedback loop crucial to good policy development and improved supports for people seeking support.
Who should attend
This presentation will help self advocates, family members, support providers, state agency personnel to understand the the role of person-centered planning in agencies and the evaluation process.
