What We Do

Person Centered Thinking (PCT) Training

PCT is an approach for supporting people with disabilities that involves the people who know them best coming together to identify what is "important to" as well as what is "important for" the person. There are four certified PCT trainers, who provide training for families, self-advocates and professionals and assistance with Individual Plan Facilitation.

The CLL manages the Oklahoma Learning Community for Person Centered Practices, which has a long-term goal of improving the lives of people with intellectual and other disabilities by changing the thinking and practices of the people who support them.

Primary Partners: Oklahoma Developmental Disabilities Council; Oklahoma Disability Law Center; Bios, A Better Life Homecare, Inc.
