Last year the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) opened a dialogue with all stakeholders on the need for transformation in how Indiana provides services and supports to its citizens with intectual and developmental disabilities. Since then DDRS has consulted with self-advocates, families, case managers, providers, and other stakeholders to better understand the collective vision for services and supports for Hoosiers with disabilities.  As a first step, the division chose to focus its initial efforts on person-centered planning (PCP) and case management.


The LifeCourse Framework has been chosen as the model for the PCP.  Learn more about this concept at
