Use person-centred thinking to know and respond to how the individual communicates

Person-centred thinking means communicating with an individual in a way that they are comfortable with and allows messages between one another to be understood. For some individuals, this may mean speaking slowly and in simple terms and for others may mean using body language and signs. I adjust the way I communicate based on the individual’s needs and preferences.
