The Art of Voice and Choice

This training takes an arts-based approach to teaching the core concepts of Person Centered Planning and Informed Choice and is designed for persons served, direct support professionals, parents, residential providers, stakeholders, employers and community members.

Person Centered Planning and Informed Choice are inclusive practices at the center of the Olmstead Plan, as well as other new Federal legislation, designed to inform individuals with disabilities of all of their options for living and working, and to place individuals with disabilities in control of their own choices, and to achieve authentic inclusion of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of community life.
