Person Centered Planning Tools (Part One)

Person Centered Planning is much more than identifying services and supports. It’s an approach to planning that looks at the person’s whole life—their interests, skills, abilities, relationships, dreams and goals.

In this first part of our special series on Person-Centered Planning, Hosts Ed Holen and Sue Elliott introduce several planning tools, as well as interviews with Betsy and her daughter Leah who talk about how they use different planning tools, and Ron Bryan from DDA who shares how DDA uses a person-centered approach to service planning.
