Individualized Support Plan
What is an ISP and how does it assist me in living a more independent life?
An individual support plan (ISP) is a document that:
Describes an individual’s goals
Specifies which support services will be used to achieve these goals
Outlines the cost of services being used and which funds will cover this cost
Identifies the individual’s support team and their support roles
Provides strategies on how to address identified risks
An ISP relies on the supporting documents listed below to help identify an individual’s needs:
Risk identification tool (RIT): identifies potential risks to an individual’s health and safety.
Person centered information (PCI): provides a more detailed account of a individual’s needs, as well as what is important for them and what is important to them.
Adult needs assessment/child needs assessment (ANA/CNA): identifies an individual’s needs and determines how many support hours will meet these needs.
