Student-Directed Individualized Education Plan (IEP): Bringing Person-Centered Practices to Schools and Beyond
The Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a cornerstone in planning and delivery of educational supports for students who are eligible for special education services. How can systems ensure that the IEP is truly person-centered? Ensuring that the student is directing and leading development and implementation of their IEP is a first step as the student develops their strengths and receives appropriate support. In this webinar, a panel of students, parents, educational consultant, and disability rights advocate will discuss strategies to make IEP meetings and implementation authentically person-centered and empowering for students and their families.
Facilitation for Choice and Control: Person-Centered Planning’s Best Kept Secret
Person-centered planning facilitation can help to create a robust person-centered whole-life plan incorporating all resources that can be mobilized to support a person—not just paid services and supports. In this webinar, people with disabilities and their facilitators will share experiences with person-centered planning facilitation services. They will be joined by a national expert in disability services who will describe how person-centered planning facilitation services can be incorporated to enhance person-centered systems. This webinar complements a new report from NCAPPS – developed as part of our technical assistance work – that provides an overview of person-centered plan facilitation services in five states.
