Person-Centred Planning or Person-Centred Action? A Response to the Commentaries
Mansell, Jim; Beadle-Brown, Julie
Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, v17 n1 p31-35 Mar 2004
This paper responds to four commentaries on our original paper in this issue. We respond to issues raised under three headings addressing the scale of the task envisaged in the 2001 White Paper "Valuing People," the feasibility and effectiveness of individual planning and how to achieve person-centred action. We conclude that there is substantial agreement about the goals of intellectual disability services and the processes that need to take place around individuals to help them get what they need and want. We disagree about whether person-centred planning will deliver this, and about whether it will provide a robust basis for claiming and defending the resources people with intellectual disabilities will need in the future.
