The purpose of the Discovery process is to gather information about a person's preferences, interests, abilities, preferred environments, activities, and supports needed. It is important to structure the Discovery process so that the individual can take the lead in developing a plan which reflects their interests, preferences, future desires and abilities. The information gathered will then be used to develop the Personal Plan which supports a personal vision and identifies action steps to move toward the vision.
