Person Centered Employment Planning Report (2014)

South Dakota

The South Dakota Work Plan created as part of membership in the State Employment Leadership Network includes a goal for person centered planning. The SD Employment First Alliance subcommittee for Person Centered Practices has met several times to discuss how to best incorporate the PCT tools and skills into employment planning efforts while remaining mindful of the cultural shift that needs to take place regarding expectations for employment and how to best provide education and exposure to those participants who may determine that employment is not a priority for them. In an effort to determine how providers are incorporating Person Centered Thinking into employment planning efforts, a survey was created and sent to all Community Support Providers and SDDC on March 27, 2014.
