This class is a foundation and philosophical framework for everyone involved in supporting people with disabilities, in any aspect, whether paid or not. The class consist of exercises where the participants acquire basic person centered thinking skills, such as:

  • The importance of being listened to and the effects of having no positive control.
  • The role of daily rituals and routines.
  • How to discover what is important to people.
  • How to sort what is important for people from what is important to them.
  • How to respectfully address significant issues of health or safety while still supporting choice.
  • How to develop goals that help people get more of what is important to them while addressing issues of health and safety.
  • How to “peel the onion” to reach the root of what people truly want or need.
  • How to figure out a means to support people in the way they want support, and WHY.
