Person-Centered Practices are ways of planning, providing, and organizing services rooted in listening to what people want and helping them live in their communities based on their choices. Inherent in person-centered practices is the emphasis on transforming the options available to the person, rather than on 'fixing' or changing the person. State services systems must consciously organize their rules and procedures to enable person-centered practices to flourish.
