Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST)

The Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) is the leading screening tool for intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) risk management and support. It is a HIPAA-compliant, web-based rating instrument developed to detect health destabilization in at-risk populations and ensure that proper care and support are provided at all times to avoid unnecessary suffering and death.

The HRST saves lives by:

  • Detecting health destabilization early in at-risk populations
  • Identifying health conditions that lead to preventable morbidity and mortality
  • Providing specific and actionable Service and Training Considerations that guide the actions of the support team
  • Providing web-based, real-time health risk data accessibility
  • Promoting balanced person-centered plans

Academy: IDD Supporter Education

Replacing risk starts with knowing how. These invaluable training eLearns, targeted at Direct Support Professionals, Case Managers, Nurses, Physicians, and more, will benefit your entire organization. 

Each eLearn course includes easy-to-understand content with: 

  • Illustrations,
  • Knowledge checks,
  • And scenarios to enhance understanding and retention.

Our online courses and webinars provide training that isn’t found anywhere else. They give learners of any educational level the ability to recognize signs and symptoms and empower them to do something about it.

These disability studies courses are intended to provide direct support & professional training for clinical and non-clinical staff, including medical students and caretakers. We recommend using these DSP training courses as a supplement to our other intellectual disability resources in order to provide the most effective person-centered support possible to patients with IDD.

Person-Centered Training Services

Person-Centered Thinking goes beyond a mindset. It’s a skill set.

Our Person-Centered Thinking Training helps attendees: 

  • Learn fundamental skill sets of person-centered thinking that support people’s hopes, dreams, and values without neglecting health and safety
  • Discover that often elusive balance of what is Important To and For the person
  • Gain and keep the person-centered momentum in your organization
  • Acquire observations, problem-solving, and management skills

Person-Centered Thinking skills and techniques are essential to achieving person-centered practices. If people are going to gain or regain positive control over their lives, then those supporting the person need to utilize a skilled, person-centered approach to delivering support. 

Person-Centered Thinking is the foundational skill set that enables those who support others to deliver organized and consistent services that align with person-centered practices.
