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.
Below are various websites that are from around the USA and Canada that showcase some of the nationally recognized person-centered planning approaches. We encourage you to visit these websites and investigate the many resources and books.
