The Division encourages the Person-Centered Planning process in determining the needs of persons receiving services.
Person-Centered Planning allows people with disabilities and their families to take an active role in the service planning process and have a voice in their choice of services. This process has an individualized focus and incorporates the principles of self-determination, informed choice, and equity. Input from the person and their Team (which includes the person's family members, friends, provider staff, DSPD Support Coordinator, etc.) should guide and direct this process.
