Thanks and Acknowledgements

VCIL expresses our great thanks to Sarah Littlefeather for her vision, persistence and leadership. Sarah coordinated this project and developed many of the Participant Directed PAS Toolkit materials. Our thanks also to Nicole Sorrell who provided invaluable assistance during the earlier development and testing of materials and group training activities. Finally, this guide and other Toolkit materials owe a great deal to the wisdom, experience, suggestions and guidance of a broad range of individuals who manage their attendant services and continue to help us develop Toolkit materials and training options. Thank you!

These resources were developed under a contract with the Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) with funding from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. Final editing, updating and printing was made possible by a grant from the Community of Vermont Elders’ Better Jobs Better Care Project, with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies.
