(e) Contain measurable goals or objectives, or both, and interventions; and

(2) An agency that provides any behavioral health service must ensure the individual service plan:
(a) Is initiated during the first individual session following the assessment with at least one goal identified by the individual or if applicable, the individual's parent or legal representative; and
