NEED HELP! Consider a Person Centered Plan (PCP)

NEED HELP! Consider a Person Centered Plan.
When people with a disability tackle obstacles related to inclusion, such as isolation, inadequate accommodations, or unfamiliarity with available resources, Person Centered Planning and Solution Circles can help. These programs provide the helpful tools that bring people in the community together to brainstorm possible resolution and empower the individuals to use the generated ideas.
We offer the free service of helping parents and advocates put together a volunteer team to assist in designing a PCP to support someone in a transitional situation. We can also offer training to small groups of parents and advocates in how to create your own Person Centered Plan. If you are feeling like you have run out of ideas or options, this process helps to identify and highlight unique talents, gifts and capabilities in the individual and promotes positive networks in helping to explore and discover where in the community these gifts can be shared, appreciated and where the person’s contributions and social roles will be valued.
