system. The state will convene an Ohio ISP Workgroup in July.
order to begin a single service plan template, the department must
first collect feedback from people around Ohio who develop and use
individual service plans. DODD's Office of System Support and Standards
will host a series of feedback forums around the state, which will be a
space for people who receive services, their family members, service
providers, and plan authors to discuss the pros and cons of current
service plans and share their experience and knowledge.
