When you become a parent, the world is full of new adventures. Having a vision for the future in mind, much like a map, is essential to making sure that your child remains at the center of decisions and their trajectory. One way to do that is through a process called person-centered planning.
The emphasis can often feel heavily focused on deficits, but person-centered planning (and creating a one-page profile) celebrates your child’s strengths, gifts and talents, what works for them, and their hopes and dreams!
You can use one page profiles almost anywhere, including your child’s school, the doctor’s office, and community of faith!
Below you will find real examples of one page profiles sent to us by families (and shared with permission) to give you an idea of what they can look like. If you would like to send in your child’s one page profile to be featured, please email our Communications Manager.
