Summer Takeaways: What are PCPs?


During CIP’s Summer Programs, students spend one whole day in a computer lab on campus creating their Person-Centered Plan (PCP). The PCP is a unique self-exploration and assessment tool that provides each student an opportunity to conceptualize his or her short and long-term goals in a visual, creative process. The students present their individual PCPs during the closing ceremony on the last day in front of family, friends, and staff. Learn more about Person-Centered Plans (PCPs)
