Person Centred Practice and Planning- Alice Springs – WORKSHOP NOW FULL

May 1, 2018, 9:00 am - May 2, 2018, 3:30 pm


This workshop is now full. Please email emma.doukakis@sydney.edu.au if you would like to add your name to a waitlist in the event of any cancellations. 


Person-centred planning and practice delivers positive outcomes to people with disability by being flexible and tailored to individual strengths and needs.

Providers that adopt person-centred planning and practice deliver supports that competently recognise and respond to needs and wishes of participants.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is underpinned by person-centred principles and approaches. The NT Quality and Safeguarding Framework recognises the importance of person-centred approaches that are essential for the safety, security and well-being of people with disability.

The Centre for Disability Studies will be delivering a series of workshops to providers to refine skills in and gain a deeper understanding of the values underpinning person-centred planning and practice.

This two day workshop will cover:  

  • current best practice approaches to supporting people with disability, including pre-planning conversations, creativity and imagination, supported decision making
  • toolkit of person-centred practice planning tools and resources, relevant to the individual needs of people and communities
  • flexible approaches to help balance person-centred practice with community centredness
  • strategies to build networks and support colleagues in their person-centred practice
  • growing person-centred practice under the NDIS
