Expanding Graphics for Person Centred Planning and Thinking

March 28, 2015

Graphic Recording has become an important part of person centered planning, the central concept of individualizing supports for people with disabilities. PATH and Maps, two of our favourite tools, are both graphic approaches to planning.

Often, as we learn these processes, we are focused on getting from one step to another and learning a bit about facilitation, a bit about graphics and a bit about what’s useful to a group of people who care about the person we’re planning with. Afterwards, we often work with intensity, often alone at the wall, with little opportunity to reflect or grow our skills.


Spectrum Consulting is excited to announce our newest workshop –

Expanding Graphics and Person-Centered Planning and Thinking

We hope you can join us on November 28, 2015 to spend the day together learning how to:

– warm up and prepare for public drawing (eek!)

– thinking about scale, color and contrast

– creating an icon library that will allow you to speed up your responsive listening

– using pastels and other media like stamping

– incorporating stickers of various kinds to increase participation

– alternatives to include folks who are visually impaired

– identifying challenges participants are having and incorporating specific learning into the day’s curriculum

– an introduction to some iPad drawing technology that you might find useful

Learning objectives: – become more confident public artists – learn new ways of being better recorders so that we can better pay attention to helping someone map out their dreams – learn about mediums that allow us to create more colorful, attractive, compelling plans – learning other ways of using graphics in our practices for understanding and communication


– be familiar with the PATH process

– have experienced drawing for PATHs

– be committed to person centered thinking and planning

This is a fast paced, interactive day which will build on the skills and questions participants bring to the group by using critique and discernment together.
