Person-Centered Planning: The Various Options to Secure Positive Student Outcomes


Whether you’re a parent or an educator from elementary to high school, you may have many questions about future plans for your students with disabilities. Person-Centered Planning helps guide students and the adults supporting them in answering some of these questions:

 What is my vision for a good year/life?
 How am I going to overcome barriers that I may face?
 What activities and/or services do I need to have to be successful in achieving my goals?
 What do I want to do when I finish school?

The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE), the RESC Alliance, and the State Education Resource Center (SERC) invite families/parents of students with disabilities and educators to learn about a variety of Person-Centered Planning options, including an introduction to Charting the LifeCourse: A New Universal Person-Centered Planning Process.
