Person-Centered Reviews

Our training and development in Person-Centered Reviews helps people envision the lives they want to live and create meaningful goals and action steps to make it happen.

Person-Centered Planning is much more than a “one size fits all” practice.  During a traditional review of a person’s services and supports, whether for an Individual Education Plan (IEP), Individual Program Plan (IPP), Individual Service Plan (ISP), or other type of review, have you ever felt that people weren’t listened to, weren’t involved in the process or didn’t feel part of it? A Person-Centered Review is a different way of doing things, that puts the person at the heart of the review.

What is a Person-Centered Review?

A Person-Centered Review uses person-centered thinking tools to explore what is happening from the person’s perspective and from other people’s perspectives. This results in learning, shared insights, and meaningful outcomes and actions for person-centered change. and ensures that a range of people are involved when the review is happening, and that their views and ideas are recorded in a structured, step-by-step way.

Who is this training for?

Person-Centered Reviews will help you keep the person at the heart of the planning process. If you are responsible for developing or updating person centered plans, or facilitating individual education plans, or you are a service coordinator, case manager, social worker, independent facilitator, health professional, provider manager, teacher, educational psychologists, or transition worker, then this course is for you.
