Winter Storm and Therap

The snow continues to fall across the region today as schools, business, churches, and countless other activities are brought to a halt.  Here in KC it looks like it will be a couple of days before things get back to normal as many will scramble to clear roads, drives, and sidewalks.  It is in these times that I am reminded once again of the value of Therap as people are able to stay up to date and current with what is taking place across an agency by simply logging into the system.  I hope you all stay safe today and take advantage of logging in and catching up on whatever needs to be addressed.

Snowfall in KC brings thing to a halt.

Can you afford a HIPAA violation?

Does your agency have an extra $50,000 to spare to pay for HIPAA violation fines? If not, then you will want to read this article. The responsible agency was a small agency in Idaho and the fines were associated with the theft of a laptop from an employee’s vehicle: More here

Please call Therap today to discuss ways that you can minimize the possibility of this happening at your agency.

NAQ Conference in Chicago

The NAQ (National Association of QDDPs) conference has been a great opportunity to network with some experts in the DD field. There are close to 500 people attending this conference from all over the United States. The conference is being held at the Embassy Suites in downtown Chicago. I have had the pleasure to catch up with many agencies that use and LOVE Therap. I have also been able to explore the paperless world with other agencies. It has been a great time. If you are not familiar with NAQ, read more here:

Listening to one of the awesome keynote speakers!

Therap Midwest Welcomes Jordan Mar to the Team!!!

Welcome to the Team

Here is a little Bio from Jordan…

I graduated from Lincoln Northeast High School in 2007. While there I was on the dance team, student council, a student ambassador, the youth leadership academy, and part of a program calling Pershing Pals where I spent my lunch hour twice a week with an elementary school student who needed some extra support. I then moved to Utah where I began working for a school for kids with special needs called Dan Peterson. I was in a classroom with teenage students who had communication barriers which often led to challenging behaviors. While at Dan Peterson I also worked for Rise doing in home support for children and adults with special needs who were in a family setting. I also helped run a summer program for Rise and did respite care on the weekends.

I moved back to Nebraska in September of 2009 and began pursuing a degree in education at the University of Nebraska. While attending the University I also worked in the public schools as an early childhood special education paraprofessional working mainly with 3-5 year old’s who had Autism or another developmental delays. After working back in the schools for a year and a half I took the opportunity to participate in the Management Training Program through Developmental Services of Nebraska. I assisted with two group homes in Nebraska. One was a home for young boys with Autism and the other was a home for men who were considered to be high risk to the community. After completion of the program I moved to Kansas City, Missouri where I was the Residential Supervisor for five homes in the Kansas City area. I am currently working on completing my degree in Early Childhood Education through the distance education program provided by the University of Nebraska.
