A PDF copy of the slides is available at the bottom of this page. Synopsis of the Topic:

This presentation will offer an introspective on PASRR assessments and ways an independent contractor can achieve a quality assessment for the person and other stakeholders. The discussion will examine the importance of framing the story in a way that will promote optimal quality of life for the person with mental and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities. The PASRR assessor’s role is critical to this process and should reflect who the person is, what he likes or dislikes, what makes her happy or sad, what the person wants for his or her life, where she wants to live, and much more.
