All adults served through Shares, Inc. shall be included in the Program Management process to promote Person-Centered and Individualized Support Plans which will develop their vocational, social, educational, and recreational skills to their fullest capabilities. Program Management will provide assessment, planning, training, and record-keeping for adults served by Shares, Inc. to coordinate all facets of training available and develop each individual’s skills. This will be accomplished through the inclusion of the person served in all aspects of Program Management and Person-Centered Planning.
Plans are established in a team setting. The individual attending Shares, Inc. is involved completely in setting goals and outcomes. In this setting, plans are made that will increase the independence of each individual, using the team as a sounding board and point of recommendation for what is available for them to pursue.
Goal-Setting/Outcomes and Strategies
Outcomes and strategies are developed with the team as a guide. When an individual states their desired outcome, the team will assist in developing the strategies for that person to reach their potential. Outcomes may also be developed that address behavioral issues, which are hindering success in the individual’s independence.
As goals are set, an individual will be introduced to their work, class or behavior training as indicated in the Person-Centered Plan. Staff is trained on each individual’s plan, and along with the Program Manager will work on training each individual at their speed, using their best learning method. Daily progress is kept for the individual in all areas.
