Person-Centered Planning (PCP) is a set of approaches to life planning based on what a person considers most important. It is traditionally associated with individuals with disabilities. In an education setting, PCP involves specifying the opportunities, accommodations, and assistance that will give a student with disabilities the best chance of experiencing what is most important.
This two-day train-the-trainer session for school teams will introduce them to the various person-centered planning programs, including the new Life Course Framework adopted by the Connecticut Department of Developmental Services. In addition, the teams will receive the materials and skills needed to facilitate a Making Action Plans (MAPS) session for students within their districts. Providing this PCP experience will help students, families, and educators identify a student’s post-school goals and determine the services needed to achieve those goals.
This session requires registration by teams of 2 to 4. It is recommended the team include a parent of a student with disabilities.
