Person Centred Planning is a method of supporting individuals and empowering them to take charge of the direction of their life and make goals which are achievable and ultimately lead to greater social inclusion and good quality of life in every aspect from good mental health to helping them achieve and overcome physical disabilities. Learning difficulties and disability has previously been approached by being agency focused, so the agency decided the goals for them and set their targets. Multi disciplinary meetings would be held and the individual’s disability and skills assessed and their care would be around that, therefore putting the disability first and not the whole person. Getting started with person centred thinking One of the best tools to start with is the 'One Page Profile' it is essentially a list of what people like and admire about the person, what the service user is telling us is important to them, and a description of what great support looks like for them:- everyone should have one! The one page profile can then be
Describe the difference that person-centred thinking can make to individuals and their families. It is a way of identifying who is relevant to an individual and to discover any important issues about their relationship. It feeds into support planning because it focuses on which people to involve in planning and which relationships can be strengthened or supported. 4. Describe examples of person-centred thinking tools.
It reflects what is important to the person (now and for the future) and specifies the support they require to make a valued contribution to their community. 1.2 Explain the benefits of using person-centred thinking with individuals. By using person centred thinking a profile can be made to suit the individual focusing on what is important to the person, how they wish to live and then moves towards those aspirations. 1.3 Explain the beliefs and values on which person centred thinking and planning is based. It is based on the belief and values that people with learning disabilities are entitled to the same rights and choices as other members of society.
We have to be able to share our experiences and mistakes so as we can learn from each other. To be able to care for the child we must not only build a relationship with them but also with their parents / carers and others in their family, we have to be able to maintain this relationship as well, this can be done daily by simple gestures such as waving hand for hello or goodbye, listening and taking interest in what the child or others have to say. Through communication we are able to reassure and comfort each other, express what our needs are and help others with their needs, guide each other and try to help resolve conflicts or disagreements. Through communication we can show our love for one another. 2.
To provide help and support to the children and their families you need to recognise their needs and rights as a practitioner. By observing the children this is how you can find out the children’s needs along with other things such as their interests. As a practitioner you should communicate with the parents as this will give you more understanding of the children’s needs (if the child may have an unknown disability-dyslexia and needs extra support). Another way of identifying children’s needs is to listen to them to find out what they desire and need. Tassoni.
The concepts of power sharing, consultation and joint ways of working are essential for effective service provision. Social care professionals need to understand the importance of promoting autonomy with individuals. They also need to be aware of their own roles and responsibilities and how they relate to others within the sector. Organisations therefore now need to think creatively about how to recruit and involve individuals in planning and delivering of care services and the need to invest time and effort in effective “partnership working. This ensures that the individual young person who is in our care is placed at the centre.
2) Empower youth and families from diverse backgrounds and underserved populations to play a central role in future community planning decisions to ensure strategies are family-driven, youth-guided, and culturally and linguistically competent. Goal 1: Increase awareness and understanding among key audiences about the System of Care approach and its benefits. Audience: *
Explain the importance of multi-agency and integrated working. How does this create a better outcome for children, young people and their families? Multi-agency working is different services, agencies, teams of professionals and other practitioners working together to provide the services that meet the needs of children, their parents or carers. These can include health visitors, educational psychologists, colleagues from other early year settings, social workers and parents or carers. Integrated Working is when all these professionals supporting children work together effectively to put the child at the centre, meet their needs and improve their lives all under one roof.
It is a process for continual listening and learning, focussing on what is important to someone now and in the future, and acting on this in alliance with their family and their friends. Person-centred planning was created in response to some specific problems with the way in which society responds to people with disabilities. Those who first described the processes were responding to the effects that 'services' can have on people's lives. In this context 'services' is a general term used to refer to the organisations which are set up to help people in relation to their disability (or at least in relation to how other people have responded to that disability). It would include health and social care services funded by government or local authorities, but also privately funded or voluntary sector projects of many kinds.
Involving young people in planning and reflecting on their own learning through assessment, evaluation and personal learning planning is essential and this is the responsibility of all practitioners regardless of the learning setting. Universal support will help young people to identify and plan opportunities for achievement through activities covering a full range of contexts and settings, whilst meeting individual needs and providing effective learning activities that address barriers across the curriculum in every context and setting. Additional Support Some young people will benefit from additional or targeted support, tailored to their individual circumstances. This could be at any point of their learning journey or, for some, throughout the journey. 1.2 explain the role of practitioners in providing impartial information and advice to children and young people 1 Young people are informed about how information, advice and guidance services can help them and how to access the services they need.
