What is person-centered planning?

Person-centered planning (PCP) empowers people with disabilities in identifying goals and the steps they need to take to attain them. Typically there is a PCP facilitator that works with the person, his or her family, teachers, and friends to develop a plan. The person at the center of the plan is able to brainstorm what they like and dislike and map out what their vocational, educational, social, and living goals are.
