Each individual eligible for division supports must work with a Case Manager to develop an Individual Support Plan (ISP). Individual support planning encourages a team approach to involve the individual and community networks in planning for the future. The process involves developing a vision for the future, while coordinating resources and supports to make the vision a reality. Supports are planned and effectively implemented in accordance with each participant’s unique needs, expressed preferences and decisions concerning his/her life in the community.
The Individual Support Plan is an investment in an individual’s life and is driven by the individual, what is important to them as designed through outcomes identified in the support plan. Download the ISP Family Guide pdf.
