Strengthening meaningful person-centered supports: Connecting to our commitment to quality person-centered practices
By Center for Parent Information and Resources

"Person-Centered Thinking", "Person-Centered Planning" and "Person-Centered Practice" are commonly used phrases in New Hampshire. These are concepts that we support, but how do we know that person-centeredness is being implemented effectively? We want to promote systems change that makes person-centered principles not just an aspiration but a reality in the lives of people who require services and supports across the lifespan.

This event will focus on energizing our commitment to person-centeredness in New Hampshire and explore how to support multiple opportunities in the state to ensure each person is at the center of their own planning.

The same program will be presented two times. The afternoon session will be in-person and the evening session will offer both in-person and virtual options. Please register for one session. There is no charge, but registration is required. Space is limited.

May 31, 2023 | 5:30 - 7:30 PM | Online or In-person at Granite State College, 25 Hall St, Concord, NH 03301
