Service Description

Person centered planning facilitation is a planning approach for determining, planning for and working toward the preferred future of a person with developmental disabilities in community life. A component of Support Coordination (Case Management) services, this service refers to the facilitation and development of a plan developed in concert with a consumer, his/her family and others that are important to the person.

◾ Personal Futures Planning

◾ Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope (PATH)

◾ Essential Lifestyles Planning.

All approaches are acceptable as long as the person centered plan:

◾ Ensures that the primary direction comes from the consumer,

◾ Involves family members and friends of the consumer’s choice and has a reliance on personal relationships as the primary source of support to the consumer,

◾ Focuses on capacities and assets rather than on limitations,

◾ Focuses on quality of life with an emphasis on personal dreams, desired outcomes, and meaningful experiences.
