Star Choices Inc. was selected to participate in a Learning Journey with Sangha Unity Network, Inc. (SUN), DBHDD, and Michelle Schwartz, M.Ed. CCC-Sp, and Katie Chandler, LCSW.
This Learning Journey is designed for provider agencies who seek to further commit to a foundation of supporting self-advocates and person-centered practices. It is a 6-month commitment that offers an opportunity for personal growth for each individual participant and collective discovery for provider organizations.
Our Star team involved in the Learning Journey has been learning about …
Self-advocacy from self-advocates: We will better understand a self-advocate’s role as active decision-makers in service provision and be able to support each person to have more autonomy and be more self-determined.
The Power of Communication and the Power of People: Workshops designed for providers to incorporate training and mentoring to agency staff members around communication development, supports, and implementing person-focused service provision.
Tools to use to support people to move from typical “client” role of waiver recipient to role of citizen, focusing on asset-based community opportunities.
