Person-Centred Active Support is all about promoting meaningful engagement in people with a developmental disability, by finding and creating opportunities and skilfully supporting the person. To date it has been aimed mostly at the support workers of adults with a disability.
Now the authors, Julie Beadle-Brown and Bev Ashman, are extending this approach to include children with developmental disabilities and their families.
