Planning Approaches

There are many different styles to Person Centered Planning (PCP), but there are some things that they generally have in common. Trained and experienced facilitators using one of the nationally recognized person-centered planning approaches, engage the person, their family/guardian and SODC staff, to design the appropriate supports they will need to be successful and have a fulfilling life in the community.
