									Person Centered Planning:

    People Creating Possibilities
               Purpose
• To get to know the student and what
  he/she wants in life
• To understand the dreams of family
  members
• To establish a record of current events
  for future reflection
• To serve as a basis for meaningful
  educational and life planning
       Some Key Components of a
         Person-Centered Plan

• Voluntary; usually convened by the family
• Incorporates a collaborative philosophy
• Brings to the table a variety of individuals who
  play a part in the student’s life
• Plans WITH not FOR the student (and family)
• It starts with abilities and interests,
  rather than disabilities
         More Key Components
• Person Centered Plans include sections for:
   – Student and Family History
   – Student Interests and Abilities
   – Student and Family’s Hopes/Dreams
   – Student and Family’s Fears/Concerns
   – Determining what’s needed to turn dreams
     into reality and overcome fears
   – Development of an Action Plan
        Some of the Benefits
• Provides a comfortable atmosphere for
  the student and family
• Hear from the student and family FIRST
• Gives educational and other service providers
  a better understanding of student/family
  dreams and fears
• Offers a visual and immediate picture of the
  student’s situation
• Provides helpful information to identify and
  prioritize needs
          Action Plan Basics
•   Focus on implementation
•   Developed from key maps
•   Help monitor and track action steps
•   Include:
     – Identifying steps to be taken
     – Determining a person or persons
       responsible for each step
     – Establishing a timeline
 Let’s look
  at some
