New Training: MySupport Plan

MySupport is a new online platform designed to assist people with disabilities to self-direct their own services. Launched in early 2015, the platform helps connect people with disabilities to direct support workers that match their values, then gives both workers and people with disabilities tools to assist with scheduling and uploading timesheets to a Fiscal Intermediary or Supported Living Agency.

This presentation will talk about how people with disabilities and Supported Living Agencies in California are using MySupport to give more choice and control to people with disabilities, consistent with the values of the ADA and the DD Act. Attendees will also learn how to use MySupport to help comply with the new FLSA Overtime rules and other upcoming regulatory requirements on providers. A $10 fee will be accepted at the door- checks made payable to NBRC. 2 CEU’s will be provided for this training.
