Course Description:

This webinar course is for all agency clinicians and addresses the expectations for Plan of Care development at THERAPY 2000. The training will review the T2K philosophy of family driven and participation focused plan of care based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) model and family autonomy. The process of goal development that focuses on three primary components will also be discussed: medically relevant participation focus, a measurable, meaningful activity, and functional deficits. Further, information on how to report progress on goals and modify goals will be shared.

Learner Objectives:

1. Define the 3 major components of a measurable, participation based goal.

2. Describe the necessary components of a goal progress report for reevaluation or short auth.

3. Identify the components of a measurable goal that should be considered for modification when a child is not mastering the goal within the specified time frame.

4. Describe the components of a goal focused on safety and function in the home.
