Topic: Customized Support ~ Designing supports that work, one person at a time
Speaker: Beth Gallagher
Description: We will take a look at how to create supports for people with Autism in a person centered manner. We will look at planning tools and philosophies that allow services to be provided successfully and respectfully. Together we will try to debunk the myths surrounding person centered planning and the reasons why it is not used more routinely. After close to 25 years experience with person centered supports, Beth will share practical solutions and ideas for creating unique and customized supports for people that have often been labeled as challenging.
