Wise Webinar A Day Series
The Intersection of Person Centered Plans and Employment Plans with Lisa Latchford
Participants will learn how Person-Centered Planning informs the employment service plan and guides the Employment Consultant with next steps for skill and job development. Person Centered Planning (PCP) is a process of thinking and planning that builds on the person’s capacities and interests to live a full and meaningful life. It is an evolving process of continual listening and learning, focusing on what is important to the person now and in the future, and acting on this together with their family and friends. The success of Person Centered Planning depends on the commitment of a team of individuals who care about the person. These individuals take action to make sure that the strategies discussed in planning meetings are implemented. Please bring paper, markers or pens to this session.
