"Person-Centered Planning (PCP) is a process designed to ensure that everyone receiving services provided or authorized by OPWDD benefits from the most individualized supports and services possible. 

The Person-Centered Planning process should empower people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to have an active voice in the development of their Person-Centered Service Plan (PCSP) and in shaping their futures. It is an individualized approach to service planning, structured to focus on the unique values, strengths, preferences, capacities, interests, desired outcomes, and needs of the person. 

Person-Centered Service Plans are expected to change and to adjust with the person over time. Consequently, it is critical to revisit the plan as prescribed by OPWDD’s Administrative Directive Memorandum (ADM) #2010-03, in addition to whenever a person finds it necessary to revise or amend their service plan."
