Day 2 in Columbia, South Carolina

Today we have the next section of our South Carolina Conference.  Yesterday was all the Case Managers, today and tomorrow we have Day and Residential Providers.  Between the two groups we have getting on for 700 people!

The providers in South Carolina have done a great job of implementing Therap.  Such a good job in fact, there was a group singing about it in a session this morning!

Tonight we have a reception which is being hosted by a couple of very generous sponsors.  As such we would really like to thank:

Puerto Rico joins the Therap Community

IMG_20151001_114524473 (1024x576)

I am very excited no announce another exciting development for Therap. We have been selected by Puerto Rico Department of Health, Division of Services for People with Intellectual Disabilities (DSPDI) to implement Therap across the Commonwealth.

While we are still in the very, early stages of the project, we already have met a great group of people who seem to be as excited to get moving with Therap as we are to help them in achieving their goals of better services and supports for Puerto Ricans with intellectual disabilities. It should also help many of our other users as the team here have agreed to work with us to enhance our […]

Six State Summit in Keystone, South Dakota

Therap North Dakota Customers at Mount Rushmore

I have spent the last few days in Keystone, South Dakota at the Six State Summit.  This is one of my favourite conferences, featuring leaders from the provider communities and states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Montana.

It is an opportunity to gather and learn and share and relax in a more informal atmosphere and one that Therap has had the privilege to support for about ten years.

This year was an exceptional conference in many ways.  Great presentations, excellent discussions, and a gorgeous environment.

I also learned that Rapid City has its own collection of presidential statues:

Monday in Keystone, South Dakota

Last night I arrived in the foggy dark and was happy just to find my way along the winding roads from Rapid City.  This morning I woke to the mist clearing off the mountains, I had forgotten quite how beautiful this part of the state it.

I was even able to sneak in a quick drive up to say “hi!” to the presidents on Mount Rushmore.

Usually, I make a point of taking photos in front of State Capitols, this must be my week for presidents having been in San Juan, Puerto Rico visiting their Walkway of the Presidents just a few days ago.

I’ll have more from the Six State Summit later.

South Carolina Conference :: Day Two

Day two of the conference kicked off with a Question and Answer panel featuring the leadership of DDSN along with Jeff Covington, Deb and myself.  It’s the first time we’ve done this with such a big crowd, but I thought it worked very well with some thoughtful and useful questions from the crowd and some great answers from DDSN.

While we are never perfect (and often too far from it), the commitment to openness in this project is impressive and very welcome.

Based on the buy-in we are getting from the providers and the commitment from DDSN, South Carolina is going to a tremendous job implementing Therap.

Tuesday in Olympia, WA

I can never come here without singing Rancid songs as I drive up from Portland or down from Seattle.

I always find it exciting to be at Regional Conferences, especially now that I get the chance to talk to more people about Individual Based Caseloads.

Talking of which… We are still working on the update to Beta, I’ll be sure to let you know when it is reay to play with.

Wednesday in (sunny and warm!) Columbia, South Carolina

Sazzad and I are down here working with the fine folks as The State of South Carolina’s DDSN.  Having been delayed on the way down because our plane leaving Hartford, CT had to be de-iced twice (twice!  That has never happened to me before and can be added to the list of sufferings from this unending winter) we are now enjoying blue skies, sunshine, and 80 degree weather.  It is a truly beautiful thing!

Lots of great work going on down here, we’ll be posting updates soon at: https://www.therapservices.net/south-carolina/

A lovely (if chilly) week in South Carolina

Time to head home now from a wonderfully peaceful week in Myrtle beach, South Carolina.

Hopefully the trip home won’t be quite as exciting as the trip down here.

We’ve had a great time chilling out (literally) and then warming by the fire!

Probably top of my list was discovering that the local Piggly Wiggly has a growler fill station! (what’s better than pouring beer at your grocery store?)

Hopefully next time we are down here we’ll be able to explore a bit more outside.

Therap’s 2015 National Conference in Atlanta, Georgia

Theraps Team The Therap team meeting before the 2015 National Conference.

This year’s national conference was a huge success. It was our biggest ever. In fact, we had more Therap staff at the conference than there were attendees at our very first National Conference in
Southbury, Connecticut.

While it was a bit of a squeeze getting everyone into the opening plenary session, I thought that the hotel did a great job of coping with so many people.

I was particularly excited to see quite so many people from South Carolina show up as we move closer to our first stage of going live there.

I think the highlight for me though was the amount of positive […]
