Modifications of Ligas Transition Service Plan Form and Instructions
December, 2014

Purpose

This Information Bulletin supplements Information Bulletin DD.13.031 regarding Ligas Transition Service Plan Compliance.

Process and Procedure

The Ligas Transition Service Plan (LTSP) Form and Form Instructions have been modified based on a review of the first year of LTSP development, input from the Independent Service Coordination (ISC) agencies, and input from the Ligas Monitor and Parties.

A webinar will be conducted:

  • Date:  January 21, 2015
  • Time:  2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

We will send further details as they are available.  This webinar will serve to review with the ISC agencies the LTSP process and highlight the modifications to the form and instructions.

ISCs should especially note in the modified form and instructions the following requirements and documentation needs:

  • Participation of the individual Class Member and guardian in the LTSP process.
  • Discussion of all day program opportunities, including employment.

The DDD will review LTSPs submitted to ensure they comply with requirements of the Ligas Consent Decree. DDD staff will follow a LTSP Quality Review Tool (pdf) to complete this review.

Effective Date

The modified forms may be used immediately. All LTSP forms completed and dated on or after January 1, 2015, must be completed in the new, modified format.  Forms completed and dated prior to January 1, 2015, will be accepted in the original format.
