The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities is preparing to develop and implement a single individual service plan (ISP), a uniform ISP template that will be used statewide. This plan will be for all people who receive services in the Ohio developmental disabilities system. The state will convene an Ohio ISP Workgroup in July.
In order to begin a single service plan, 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, and service providers and plan authors to discuss the pros and cons of current service plans and share their experience and knowledge.

Ohio ISP Workgroup
The Ohio Individual Service Plan (ISP) Workgroup was created to develop and implement a single assessment and template that will be used for all people receiving developmental disabilities services in Ohio.
Following the feedback forums in May and June, a workgroup will commence in early July. The workgroup of 25 stakeholders consists of people receiving services, family members, providers, and a variety of county board and intermediate care facilities staff. Workgroup members represent both large and small counties and agencies. In addition to the workgroup, other valuable partners will be asked to attend the meetings.
The Ohio ISP Workgroup will begin reviewing feedback from the forums at its first meeting, and will subsequently work to develop ISP templates and determine the course for piloting, training, and implementation.
The workgroup will meet monthly for at least one year. Once the pilot of the ISP begins in January 2020, the workgroup will review data collected throughout the pilot to decide on necessary updates and changes to the ISP templates and training.
If you are unable to attend the workgroup, send feedback to OSSAS@dodd.ohio.gov.
