Person Centered Practices
Person Centered Practices (PCP) are ways of commissioning, providing and organizing services, rooted in listening to what people want to help them live in communities as they choose. All employees of The Arc Davidson County have been trained in Person Centered Practices.
PCP acknowledges that those supported will have better-quality lives; by means of active social roles, community connections, enhanced planning and significant influence with independent decision-making.
“People First” Language:
The overlying principle of “people first” language, is the idea of focusing on the person, not the disability.
