SUPPORT PLANNING WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
Credit points: 15
Person Centred planning and practice has become a catch all phase referring to the development and implementation of effective individualized support plans for people with disability. This subject explores the different contexts and types of individualised plans that professionals may be required to utilise and the key skills and elements of the planning process. These will include effective communication, including verbal and non-verbal techniques, strategies for identifying needs and resources, and using multiple theoretical stances to provide insights into different perspectives on needs.
