Help Us Pilot a Scale of Community Life Engagement

Does your organization provide day services and supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities? We need your help testing our new Guidepost Fidelity Scale (GFS)!

Our aim with the GFS is to help service providers better understand how their day services and supports align with the Four Guideposts for Community Life Engagement (CLE).

Community Life Engagement Guideposts: 1. Individualize supports for each person 2. Promote community membership and contribution 3. Use human and social capital to decrease dependance on paid supports. 4. Ensure that supports are outcome-oriented and regularly monitored.

How can you help?

  • Identify 5 or more of your staff who are familiar with your day services
  • Those 5 staff will complete the online GFS, which should take about a half-hour per staff member to complete

Why should you participate?

  • Testing this scale in the real world is an essential step to making it useful for service providers
  • Your staff will gain early access to ICI’s CLE Online Modules for Direct Support Professionals

If you are interested in participating, please contact Ngai Kwan: ngai.kwan@umb.edu. Visit thinkwork.org/cle for more information about Community Life Engagement.
