Child Preference Indicators

Developed by the Center for Learning and Leadership, Oklahoma’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD).

The Child Preference Indicators guide is a tool that can assist in developing individualized learning plans. It is designed to help professionals access a family’s expertise about their child and to help families in giving that expertise to professionals. The Child Preference Indicators guide provides information that formal assessments typically do not address, and can be used by family members to identify and communicate what motivates their child. It covers seven domain areas that provide prompts for discussing important considerations with the child and his or her family members.

Personal Preference Indicators

Developed by the Center for Learning and Leadership, Oklahoma’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD).

The Personal Preference Indicators guide is a tool to assist in planning with and for a person with a developmental disability.  It is a guide, not a checklist, for accessing information about the person's preferences. This guide enables members of the planning team to identify and focus on interests and preferences connected to seven domain areas, including self-determination and socialization.

The individual with a disability, family members, friends, and knowledgeable professionals can use this guide for planning in the areas of education, transition, health management, and others. If used by any member of the interdisciplinary team in their interaction with the person with a disability, this guide has the potential to provide a picture of the person that will guide the planning process in a considerate, appropriate, and positive manner.
