In your absence, would anyone know that your child with a disability likes to go to Olive Garden on Sunday after church? Or that he/she values being at family get-togethers, birthdays and holidays throughout the year?

A will is a legal document that spells out your wishes regarding the legal care of your children, as well as the distribution of your assets after your death. However, a will typically does not address personal details about a beneficiary's continued lifestyle or priorities.

Join Barb Sapharas, a representative from the Nisonger Center at The Ohio State University, for an introduction to this informative, ancillary tool that outlines your child's strengths, weaknesses, ways to support him/her and life priorities and goals. A One-Page Person Centered Description communicates significant information about a person; what is important to them, what people like and admire about them and how they want to be supported – on a single sheet of paper.


  • Identifying the components of a One-Page Person Centered Description
  • Completing a One-Page Person Centered Description of/with your loved one
  • Using a One-Page Person Centered Description in many environments
  • Maintaining an up-to-date One-Page Person Centered Description of/with your loved one
