(also called Person-Centered Planning)
This is an ongoing planning process that helps to determine goals and paths for clients. Person-directed planning begins with listening to families and clients in order to understand what it is that they want in their lives. It builds on dreams, strengths and capabilities. Understanding what is of value to clients and their families and knowing how clients can participate in the community is key to the process.
The following Person-Directed Planning guide has been designed by The Individualized Funding Coalition for Ontario and funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services of Ontario:
