Person Centered Planning (PCP) is used as a life planning model to enable individuals to increase their personal self-determination and improve their own independence.
It is a method of planning for anyone who is accessing supports to ensure they remain at the center of their decision making i.e. older people, those persons who are homeless, have health issues, have survived domestic violence etc.
Through an agreement with the Alliance of Early Learning Programs Northwest Region of Alberta we piloted one page profiles in two daycares and one day home with the intent of introducing person centered thinking through the use of one page profiles.
