Create a One-Page Profile! A parent or care-giver can learn to create a plan for their child to begin building a positive and practical portrait of ability. What a powerful way to communicate your child?s strengths, gifts, and capacity at IEP meetings. This was the tool I used for my daughter to access an inclusive education for her. Because this is TASH's 40th anniversary along with the IDEA it is a perfect time to discuss where we have been, where we are now and how far we have to go! We believe parents are their child's #1 fan and advocate! OBJECTIVES: FACT, Oregon's Parent Training Information Center, offers workshops for families to learn about person-centered planning. During the workshop, you will: * Consider what your child does well * Collect strategies for success * Focus on the strengths and gifts of your child Person-centered planning is useful in many situations and at all ages. It is helpful when considering the many transitions you will need to plan for in your child?s life: future school situations, jobs, and living situations ? and it collects and documents strategies for success. This portrait is helpful when introducing your child to new caregivers, teachers, friends, and people in the community. This session will include examples of how to use this powerful tool from Early Intervention, IEP, Transition to Adulthood, Employment and Independent Living! How this tool can help to capture the importance of accessing a whole life, and sharing it with the community you are in.
