Creating Positive Actions Using the Support Sequence provides a more creative approach utilizing all of the natural supports available to us first.

Creating Positive Actions Using the Support Sequence explores 5 possible support networks in sequence with paid support being the last option. It starts with looking at the person’s skills and strengths, moves to exploring assistive technology, family and friend networks, available community supports, and finally eligibility specific supports.

This approach ensures that people have opportunities to be as independent as possible, build reciprocal relationships while achieving a good balance of supports where needed.
