Beginning to Use the PPS
This workshop places two students in front of each computer. The students are instructed in the areas of adding new consumers to the PPS, completing Vision for the Future statements for consumers and establishing Personal Goals. Assigning and tracking supports, services and skill training is taught, and users are introduced to the PPS Program Library and its 200 some training programs. This workshop is usually taught in two days. If installation of the software or development of an agency-specific PPS implementation plan is required, an additional half-day is usually necessary.

This workshop generally occurs one to two months after the Beginning to Use the PPS workshop. Staff are assisted as they produce actual progress notes, and assistance is given to the PPS System Manager in a variety of areas, depending on need. Appropriate staff are taught how to do consumer progress notes and reviews. This workshop is normally provided in two days.

This workshop concentrates on the conversion of an agency's curriculum to the PPS format, and the entry into the Agency's PPS Program Library of as many of the agency's consumer's objectives as time and manpower allows. It is not necessary to have a computer for every two students, however at least one computer is needed for entry of the converted programs into the PPS Program Library. This workshop is normally provided in two days.
