Stepping Up to the Promise and the Spirit of the Home and Community Based Waiver
Person-Centered Planning, Thinking and Doing
About the series
The 2014 Home and Community-Based Services Waivers (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!
This can't miss webinar series offers state agency leaders, adult service providers, family members, and service beneficiaries grounding in the meaning of the new Waiver regulations and a comprehensive review of WHY and how to implement them. Webinar presenters, many of whom are internationally renowned thought-leaders and trainers, will cover big questions and lessons learned from decades in the field such as grounding practices in strong values; the meaning of "person-centered"; the ethics of supporting vulnerable people; empowering the community to support its citizens; supporting risk-taking and much more. Many great examples of adults living productive, valued roles in their communities will be shared along with descriptive of the supports that make thriving possible.
