Supporting Child Using Person-Centered Planning Methods
How can Person-Centered Planning help you/your child?
Do you ever wonder what goals or objectives you should be working on with your child? Or what things you can do now that will benefit them as an adult? Person-Centered Planning tools can support you in creating a long-term, well-rounded plan for, and with, your child.
The Person-Centered Planning (PCP) process is an individualized approach to planning services and supports to help a person achieve their goals, get the life they want for themselves, and help them reach their vision of a good life. PCP places the person at the center of the planning process as the expert of their life, interests, and talents.

February Advocacy Tip: The legislative session is in action. Follow legislation trackers and call or email your representative about your issues. If you can, come to the Capitol and give public testimony (or sign up to do so virtually). Go to le.utah.gov to find your legislators and other pertinent legislative information.
