Person centred practice – one-page profiles
A one-page profile captures all the important information about a person on a single sheet of paper under three simple headings; what people appreciate about me, what’s important to me and how best to support me.
For more about one page profiles and how they might help communication and relationships in Heath, Social Care and Education see: Helen Sanderson Associates One page profiles
This is a network of national organisations who provide free information, advice and support to children and young people with SEND and their families.
