What’s so great about the ISP Agenda?

Well, a number of things actually!  The ISP Agenda is to be used as an itinerary or outline to be followed at the annual ISP meeting (or quarterly mtg., etc. as applicable).  The Agenda allows information from the Personal Focus Worksheet to be selected as Individualized Items for discussion along with providing the option for any other additional items to be included for review as well. The current approved Action Plans & ISP Programs can easily be pulled into the Agenda from the Individual Support Plan with the ability to attach an ISP report along with each applicable Action Plan & ISP Program. 

Once all Individualized Items, Action Plans & ISP Programs, etc. are included, the ISP Agenda can be approved and printed off for each ISP attendee.  This is helpful as it allows everyone to see and follow the topics being reviewed, plus; the Agenda provides a writing space next to each listed item for note taking.  After the ISP meeting, the option to select “Record Meeting Minutes” is available at the bottom of the Agenda.  This will then allow text to be entered into the blank areas in which the notes were taken.  It also provides the option to indicate the outcome for each Individualized Item such as “Discussion Record”, “Deferred”, “Action Plan” or “Issue Resolved”. The Agenda also allows external documents to be attached if applicable. 

Once the meeting minutes have been entered and the Agenda is saved, it is complete.  The finished product can then be reviewed in Therap by the team members, and if needed, it can be printed off for those who may not be linked into the Therap program (family/guardians/etc.).  When reviewed in Therap it does allow you to open and view the links to the Personal Focus Worksheet, ISP Programs & ISP Report, as well as any external documents that are included.  Personally, I have found the Agenda to be very helpful when organizing and leading an ISP meeting and very effective in getting all of the finished information to everyone when complete.  I guess that’s what is so great about the ISP Agenda!!!

FIRST. BLOG. EVER.

Well, here it is… Just like I said, my FIRST BLOG EVER!

I am going to start right off and just state the truth, I have been dreading this first blog for some time now… After thoroughly contemplating how to start, what to say, what title, etc. I realized – I kinda have stage fright (or screen fright)! Those who know me personally would agree that I’m not very shy and I am rarely at a lack for words.;) Regardless, I have decided to press on – push all fears aside – and strive to create, brilliant, insightful, beautiful blogs on a regular basis! Of course, they will be a little more Therap oriented…

So now to end my very first blog on more of a Therap related note: I am extremely happy to have recently become a member of the “elite” group of Therap Certified Trainers! It was awesome to be able to hang with a few of you at the National Conference in KC. I am also very excited as I have been asked to attend the Illinios Conference in Chicago this Spring and teach a few sessions. It will be great to be able to meet even more Therap users and hopefully get to know some of the Therap staff a little more as well! :)
