Person Centered Thinking is a core concept at the foundation of the services and supports provided to people with intellectual disabilities and autism in Pennsylvania. All stakeholders are invited to come and learn about Person Centered Thinking and how it can be used to enhance the quality of support for people with developmental disabilities.
A two-day professional development opportunity worth twelve credit hours will be offered at various locations across the Commonwealth in March and April. Participants must attend both days in order to complete the training and receive a certificate of attendance. Training hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There is no fee for the training or certificate.
This interactive training serves as a foundation for everyone involved in supporting people with developmental disabilities. During this training, participants will have the opportunity to develop their skills by completing a series of guided exercises. Participants will practice utilizing person-centered thinking resources and techniques. Information gathered using these skills can help teams develop meaningful Individual Support Plans that help people with disabilities achieve an Everyday Life.
Individuals, family members, Supports Coordinators (SCs), SC Supervisors, Provider Staff, Administrative Entity (AE) Staff and other interested parties are encouraged to register and attend.
