The self determination services can be segmented in two distinct sections.
The approach includes determining, planning, and working toward the preferred future of a person with developmental disabilities; consultation with the family is encouraged. “Person-Centered Planning” is a framework for planning and making decisions comma based on an awareness of and sensitivity to the person’s lifestyle and cultural background and his/her family.
Components of this service include assisting the individual in making informed decisions regarding his/her budget and locating, accessing, and coordinating services and support consistent with his/her “Individual Program Plan “(IPP). Our staff (or coaches) leads, participates, and/or advocates on behalf of participants in the “Person-Centered Planning” process and development of their individual “IPP” by providing relevant, specific services and support systems.
