Over the course of our careers, spanning a combined 50 plus years in this field, we've noticed a consistent gap between what we find important for the people we provide services to, as compared to what is important for the other people involved with that person. Parents, neighbors, friends and direct support professionals all play a major role in the lives of people experiencing disability, and as such, we believe it is equally important to honor and create vision for and with the entire team of support...not matter your role. We will delineate between Person Centered Practice and Person Centered Thinking through the sharing of stories. In sharing our stories we provide a lens into the practical application of Person Centered Thinking and see what is truly possible for people when we stop and take the time to value everyone involved. We hope people walk away with a new sense of how to view the entire team of support. Person Centered Thinking should be the foundation for everything we do. It should not be limited to that of just the person being supported, rather, Person Centered Thinking should permeate the entire team.
