Twenty two people with intellectual disabilities, their families, volunteers and professionals attended three training courses on person centred planning in Spain. They explored how person centred planning can bring about a significant positive change in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
In addition, the Spanish partner of ‘New Paths to InclUsion Network’ FEAPS organised a sensing journey in January 2014. During two days, FEAPS hosted project partners from different countries and presented successful projects facilitating inclusion of persons with intellectual disabilities in employment and education.
In the same month, FEAPS organised a conference for 120 professionals, families, volunteer and students. The programme featured John O’Brien, one of the pioneers of Person Centred Planning. In the workshop, participants learned about the New Paths to InclUsion Network, its objectives and explored the concept of person centred thinking and practice.
