Future Changes: Person Centered Planning & Individualized Support Plan Released by FSSA

Just over a year ago, the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) opened a dialogue with all stakeholders on the need for transformation in how Indiana provides services and supports to its citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Since then, we’ve consulted with self-advocates, families, case managers, providers and other stakeholders to better understand our collective vision for services and supports for Hoosiers with disabilities and what we can do to transform our approach to move us toward supporting individuals and families in their community. As a first step, the Division chose to focus its initial efforts on Person Centered Planning (PCP) and case management. These areas were targeted due to the central role both play in supporting individuals and families in designing meaningful plans to encourage effective supports and services to get individuals closer to their definition of a good life. 


Using feedback from stakeholders, recommendations from the Case Management Innovation Group and resources from the National Community of Practice for Supporting Families1 , the Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services (BDDS) will begin introducing changes to the approach for PCP over the next several months across both the Family Supports Waiver (FSW) and the Community Integration and Habilitation (CIH) waiver. We will also be making minor changes to how the current case management service is delivered to better align with the changes to our PCP approach.
