Planning Today for a Better Tomorrow: One-Page Descriptions

Each of us has gifts and talents. We all have things that are very important to us and we have unique needs.

A One-Page Description can help us share our family member's gifts, talents and needs with others - families, friends, direct support professionals, managers, teachers - so they can get to know and better support our family member. The One-Page Description can be the building block for IEP's, ISP's, and person-centered plan meetings. In this workshop for families, participants will learn

  • What a One-Page Description is and how to create one
  • How to communicate important person-centered information in an easy to read, easy to understand format
  • How a One-Page Description can be used in a variety of settings to help best support your family member

Participants will have a One-Page Description in progress by the end of the session.
