Book Title: Person-Centered Planning: Helping People with Disabilities Achieve Personal Outcomes (High Tide Monograph Series) (High Tide Disability)
Publisher: High Tide Press
Author: Mary Mercer
Planning in the lives of people with developmental disabilities has moved beyond the "do this, do that" model of the past. A person now has the option of dreaming about and working towards a life of stimulation, fulfillment, variety, individuation and satisfaction. But, without a focused plan that serves the needs and wishes of the person and not the system, service providers fail to help people with disabilities to exercise those options.
