Location of Meeting: CISA, Lincoln IL
The team reviewed the DHS brochure. The brochures can now be found online although it is difficult to get to the brochure. You need to click on developmental disabilities under customers, developmental disabilities, what services may be available (link in middle of page under Need more information and click on developmental disability services), then to More Information and Resources, and click on brochures, which will bring up all of the brochures.
The committee discussed the fact that so many families don't know who ISC Agencies are or what ISC Agencies do. There is very broad information on the web site and it's hard to tell how that information can be helpful to you. The role of service coordination needs to be more prominent on the web site with a description of our role.
As the work teams role out their work, the brochures and the web site will be revised to show more prominently the role of service coordination. Our team recommendation is that we will only be called Independent Service Coordination Service Agencies.
What did they discover? What do they recommend?
The team reviewed the information from the Training Subcommittee Meeting on June 12, 2014. Please review the minutes from the meeting for details (see attached).
The team discussed having 8 additional hours of continuing education annually for ISC staff. There was discussion regarding what types of training that would encompass but it was decided it should be targeted toward specific ISC roles.
Is there a list of criteria/checklist for approving CEU credits for training? Is there a way it would be easy for DHS-DD Division to approve training that traditionally does not have CEU's associated with it? All ISC agencies would have access to the checklist to see if training they are interested in would qualify for CEU's.
We would like DHS to consider:
A list of recommendations will be sent to everyone on the committee that will be organized by category (Darlene has grouped the recommendations by category). Please review to see if all of the recommendations from prior minutes are on the list.
Review the recommendations and prioritize/identify your top 6 recommendations.
