Person-Centered Thinking

A second set of Person-Centered Planning Tools have been developed and utilized by Dr. Michael Smull and Associates.  These tools embrace the concept of “person-centered thinking” which begins with learning both what is important to a person and what is important for a person, the balance between them, and discussing trade-offs.  A tool that could be helpful for a guardian is a One Page Profile.
