Person centred methodology

A Person Centered Support System:



  • This alignment between SIS, Individual Supports Plan and Quality of Life, creates an excellent opportunity to support people methodically in improving their quality of life: measuring quality of life gets a place in a support methodology, with the aim to continuously improve the quality of life of people.

  • Besides improving the process of individual planning, it creates the conditions for a Management Information System in which the core business of the organisation, supporting people and improving the quality of life of the persons it supports, is at the centre: personal outcomes can thus be used to guide organizational change and improvement:

Critical issues

Critical issues

The same amount of money

The same regulations and law

The same variety and type of clients

The same parents and social network

The same critisism of the outside world

The same fear/uncertainty about future



The economical crisis: creativity

Drop-outs in work and school: more support and assistance is needed

The grow of personal isolation: more emotional and social connections needed

The need of family, friends for person with a disabilty to keep involved in each others life



The person with disabiltiy is not at the centre on his own, but

The person with his personal network is at the centre, supported and assisted by professionals in a transparant system



A full concept of Quality of Life in living, work and learning!

A minimum of hierarchy in the organization; selfmanaging teams in a transparant system

Aim at and connect talents and preferences of all people

Bridge interaction and communication

Believe in possibilities!
