The Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) is planning to update its individual support planning (ISP) process for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). The DHS Office of Developmental Disability Service intends to adopt a person-centered process called Charting the LifeCourse Framework, that enhances strategies based on a person's strengths, and recognizes a person's “whole life” rather than a focus only on Medicaid-funded services.
