Connecticut Implements New Individual Planning Process

Connecticut Department of Developmental Services (DDS) implemented a new planning process in July.  According to a recent communication, “this new process and documentation will incorporate Person Centered Planning tools from the Charting the Life Course series and other sources. The emphasis of this new process will be to increase an individual’s participation in their own planning.”

 “The planning tool itself will start with what is important to the person and with the individual’s vision for their future, the services they want and flow forward with input from families and providers on how we can organize supports to help the person to attain their goals.”
