Person-Centered Approaches in Schools and Transition

The New Jersey Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), in partnership with The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, has developed a video production highlighting the Person-Centered Approaches in Schools and Transition (PCAST) project. The video highlights the work being done statewide to explore the use of person-centered approaches in schools and to implement promising practices in participating districts. The video features multiple participant perspectives, including students, parents, and educators who have been actively engaged in the work. The OSEP supports the use of person-centered practices, because it gives the student a true voice in the planning process and is based on student's strengths and interests.  For additional information, please contact, Bob Haugh ( or Michael Steinbruck (
