Part 2 of a 3 part series on Person Centered Practices:
People lead lives that are made up of specific, connected, and integrated parts of life. This course will explore those connections and give skills that can be used to help plan across someone’s lifespan using information developed by CHARTING the LifeCourse. Skills will help identify supports needed, connections needed, and supplies needed. This course will also provide an overview of the types of planning available developed by The Learning Community for Person Centered Practices, Beth Mount, John and Connie O’Brien, Jack Pearpoint, and David Wetherow.
