When and how your agency plans to onboard

There are two options for onboarding the OhioISP:

  1. OhioISP Online - DODD's free online system
  2. OhioISP Online via a third-party vendor - your agency will input OhioISPs into a vendor's system, which will later transmit to DODD's system

Once you've made your selection, please review the appropriate onboarding checklist document below:

Training & Support

All QIDPs need to complete OhioISP Training Parts 1-3. 

QIDPs should attend Regional Support Gatherings  and monthly office hours to discuss OhioISP and other trending topics. The Gatherings are intended to build confidence, competence and make connections for QIDPs and SSAs.

Onboarding Planning

Develop and implement a communication plan for all stakeholders (individuals, guardians/families, etc.) to inform them of the transition to OhioISP and how this transition will affect them.
