Abstract Details for Person-Centered Practices Self-Assessment

The Self-Assessment was created by Mary Lou Bourne at the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) for the National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices and Systems (NCAPPS) at the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI). It is based on tools used in the Baldrige Framework for Performance Excellence. Originally developed by Management Support Solutions in 2006, the tool was used by agencies participating in a project called Becoming a Person-Centered System. It was then adapted for international use as a tool called Progress for Providers, developed by Helen Sanderson Associates and others, that is currently in use in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia to measure service providers’ adoption of person-centered practices. This adaptation for NCAPPS is designed for governmental agencies that oversee human services. This Self-Assessment is publicly available for use in the administration and improvement of supports for people with long-term service and support needs. All uses should acknowledge NCAPPS and the developers of this content. Permission is required if the material is to be modified in any way or used in broad distribution.
