Illinois Life Span Program Lunchtime Webinar – The PATH to Real Person-Centered Solutions, presented by Kish Pisani, IAMC

February 11, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The PATH to Real Person-Centered Solutions

Learn about the PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope) process for individuals with IDD and why person-centered planning is at the heart of a self-directed quality of life. PATH is a visual, supportive process that provides individuals with disabilities and their circle of support, a rich, future-based plan based on the individuals’ gifts and talents, preferences, and needs. This session not only helps you understand the steps of the process but how it has impacted lives and organizations. If you’re already familiar with PATH and MAPS, this session will include updates and new tools.
