Individualized Support Plan
What is an ISP & why do I need one?
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.
