The Learning Community for Person Centered Practices envisions a world where all people have positive control over the lives they have chosen for themselves. Our efforts focus on people who have lost or may lose positive control because of society’s response to the presence of a disability.

David Pitonyak | Imagine David’s practice is based upon a simple idea: difficult behaviors result from unmet needs. In a sense, difficult behaviors are messages which can tell us important things about a person and the quality of his or her life. People with difficult behaviors are often missing:

- A sense of safety and well-being
- Joy in ordinary and everyday places
- Power and choice
- A sense of value and self-worth
- Relevant skills and knowledge
- Supporters who are themselves supported
