Something magical happens when you ask a person with a disability about their dreams. Rarely do they get to express their wants, needs, dreams and desires.The Person Center Plan is an exceptional program for implementing a positive plan in a safe, and possible arena.
Recently, our son Phillip updated his person centered plan at the Academy for Social Inclusion at Kennesaw State University. The entire class spent time with trained facilitators to discover what paths are possible for living the lives that they want.
Phillip and his peers want the same things most of us do, a good job, decent housing and a healthy social network. Phillip first wrote a plan two years ago. Then, he needed to achieve simpler tasks like riding the bus independently with his power much, now he’s ready for the big one….getting a job. Within two weeks, he is supposed to get a plan for an internship that could lead to lifelong employment.
