Family Forums Planned for July Help Design a System for Person-Centered Thinking in Rhode Island PDF image 350 kb (PDF)

The system of services and supports for Rhode Island adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities is in transformation. The new system needs to be built on the concept that the person is the beginning and the end of every conversation and must be the primary focus of every conversation and every form. This is called person-centered thinking. Many of you have been involved with this idea for a long time. Some of you have participated in meetings about person-centeredness during the past few years. It is now time for Rhode Island to take the next steps towards implementing a truly person-centered system. Implementing a true person-centered system is a step towards the conflict-free case management system. Click the link above to download complete details.

These will be family-to-family discussions and will be facilitated by family members. No registration is required. If you need any accommodations, please make your request at least one week in advance of the scheduled forum. Contact Elaine Sollecito at esollecito@ric.edu or call 401-456-2764.
