Guidepost 1: Individualize Supports

This section focuses on Guidepost 1: Individualize supports for each person. Community Life Engagement supports should be tailored to the interests and needs of each unique person. Individualization of supports:

  • emphasizes person-centered planning and discovery, and

  • requires creative staffing, intentional grouping, and at times generating additional funding.
