Person Centered Planning
I'm looking forward to engaging with the community on this topic. In my work with families and transition-aged youth over the years, PCP process was embraced by families as a strategy to explore, vision, and yes, plan for their children in a way that was not deficit based. While it's important to for PCP to inform and support the the IEP process and document for students and families, and other IEP team members, it's also important that the process not be reduced to the point of meaninglessness in order to do so.
I'll be sharing some on my own favorite resources I've used with families in this space, as well as sharing a case study of sorts of a successful and practical use of the process with families and students with/for whom I have co-facilitated the process. I also look forward to you all sharing your questions, experiences, resources and comments with the community.
