Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Systems of support for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities are moving from institutional, congregate-based settings to the community. Understanding a person’s unique strengths, hopes, and dreams for the future can help guide provision of community-based supports that align with their choices. Person-centered planning (PCP) is embraced by many state agencies across the United States. OTs have unique skill sets and can play a vital role in the PCP process.
