Self-Direction Toolkit – “The purpose of the Kansas Self-Direction Toolkit is to provide people with disabilities the information and tools they need to hire and manage their personal assistant supports and services. This Toolkit was developed to take you through each step of the process from developing a job description, selecting a payroll agent, advertising for personal assistants (PAs), screening, interviewing, selecting and then training those people you hire, as well as managing, paying and even dismissing a personal assistant if necessary. The Toolkit includes tips on planning for emergency back-up PAs, definitions of abuse, neglect, and exploitation and other useful resources.” (source K-Pass Self-Direct Toolkit)
