This document contains the Pennsylvania Model Individualized Written Program Plan (IWPP) for vocational rehabilitation facilities and accompanying resource manual. The first part provides the IWPP form, which consists of a cover sheet, goal sheet, and performance notes; instructions for completing it; and an example of a completed form. An explanation of the IWPP review is also given. A glossary and list of suggested sources are appended. The second part, the manual, provides materials to assist staff of vocational rehabilitation facilities in implementing the IWPP. A section on developing and monitoring suggests a process for developing IWPPs, gives suggestions for prioritizing program goals and for writing progress notes, provides a suggested client interview guide for developing a strength/need list, makes suggestions for streamlining paperwork, and discusses writing clear, behavioral goals and objectives. Steps involved in self-surveys--a recommended process for monitoring IWPPs and preparing for licensing--are discussed. Sample forms are provided. Other sections discuss (1) strategies for involving the client as well as parents and relatives, (2) maximizing staff cooperation and special implementation problems, (3) coordination with the client's referral/sponsoring agency, and (4) general approaches and sample strategies for dealing with problem behaviors.
