WORK Self-Direction Training & Assessment


THE KANSAS SELF-DIRECTION TOOLKIT provides individuals with disabilities the information and tools needed to self-direct any component of their personal assistance services. Consumers, case managers, service coordinators, family members and others will like the Toolkit’s step-by-step format with a mix and match option that puts you in control of the information you want and need to self-direct your personal assistant (PA) supports and services.


WORK Informational Presentations
Working Healthy staff can travel to various regions throughout the state to provide information about WORK to community agencies. If your staff works directly with consumers in case management positions (Independent Living Counselors, Service Coordinators, etc.) they would benefit the most from this information. We have a presentation and then can facilitate questions and discussion about this new opportunity. If you would like more information about WORK and/or how to schedule a WORK presentation in your area, please contact your local Benefits Specialist or contact Sherri Marney at (785) 296-8009.
