When planning Person Centred Plans, your child will cover some of the following:
Your child’s PCP can be documented in any format they wish. It could be a powerpoint presentation, electronically stored in general, in a booklet or on a sheet of paper. They can add photos, drawings, notes - anything that they would like to help explain what is important to them. Your child’s Person Centred Plan can be as brief or as long as they like and even if they change their mind, they can change it at a later date. It is really important for our students to remember they own their PCPs.
Every student, no matter if they are in School or College will be given a Care Plan when they start at the Deaf Academy. Your child’s Care Plan is rather different to their Person Centred Plan in that it will contain personal information about your child, rather than just the targets that they have set themselves. Your child’s Care Plan has a preset format and is written by the Academy’s professionals who care for your child when they are a student here. It is a record of their health needs; any special requirements your child may have, dietary or otherwise, and any relevant information that may be required by those who care for them.
