“Person centred planning is a way of organising around one person to define and create a better future”
(Pete Richie, 2002)
About Person Centred Planning
Person Centred Planning was developed as a way of enabling people – children and adults – to move out of special segregated places schools, hospital and institutions into mainstream life – schools and communities. Person Centred Planning is built on the values of inclusion and looks at what support a person needs to be included and involved in their community.
Person centred approaches offer an alternative to traditional types of planning which are based upon the medical model of disability and which are set up to assess need, allocate services and make decisions for people. Person centred planning is rooted in the social model and aims to empower people who have traditionally been disempowered by ‘specialist’ or segregated services by handing power and control back to them.

Person Centred Planning gives Parents and Carers Hope for Inclusion
You helped me when my son was struggling at school and fighting for his EHCP to be appropriate to his needs without excluding him from mainstream school. I thought that I would write to thank you for the huge difference you made to us, knowing that people believed in inclusive solutions in the same way that we did.
I was told that my son would not talk, he talked. I was told that my son may not walk well, he walks well. I was told that my son had a profound disability and that he needed specialist schooling. He went to mainstream school. I was told at every stage of college life that he would not cope and achieve his qualifications. He has coped and achieved his qualifications. I was told that I was being overly optimistic when I said that my son would live independently, have a partner and a family. My son is now 20 years old and is learning to be independent, he can cook with limited supervision, put dishes in the dishwasher, clean, use the washing machine and the lawn mower. He is learning independent travel programmes and he can now go to visit his girlfriend without support. He is learning more responsibilities as a result of the constant promotion of his independence and refusal to remove him from his community and society. Always believe that things can improve as long as there is family, community and society to support development and achievement.
Learn everything you need to be an inclusive practitioner
I just wanted to say again how very much I valued the training sessions. Thoughts and ideas have been percolating round my mind ever since. It was both a cognitive and sensory learning experience for me and, as such, particularly valuable!! It made me realise I need to provide my students with more holistic learning opportunities! I have particular responsibility for ensuring that all our modules take inclusion seriously. We decided against having a specific 'Special Needs' module and, instead, aim to make all our module content inclusive. You all inspired me and together make a WONDERFUL team!
