About the Training

This is a one-day  online workshop, with limited participant numbers to ensure a positive learning experience for all. Prior to attending the workshop participants are required to view a pre-recorded webinar and review pre-reading materials.

Participants will learn to facilitate I-CAN interviews with a person with disability and their circle of support, map support needs using the I-CAN v6 tool, and generate an individual support needs report which helps guide service delivery and planning.

This involves conducting an I-CAN assessment with a person that is submitted to CDS, with consent for review and feedback. Once finalised, the participant will be formally certified and have full access to the I-CAN tool This process will be discussed in more depth during the workshop.
