Pictability™: Planning done differently

A new way to plan and set goals

Unlike traditional planning methods typically led by professionals, Pictability™ puts families in the driver’s seat. Through playful exploration, families reconnect with what is truly important to them, their family and their child.

Pictability™ looks at the family as a whole. Research shows that parents often place all their energy into the child with a disability or delay. This is not sustainable in the long term and carers risk burnout and mental health challenges. The Pictability™ experience is designed to consider parents as an individual and their family as a whole. Children thrive when their family thrives.

The Pictability™ experience shines a light on a child’s abilities and strengths and helps families to focus on the things their child can do, opening the possibilities for a bright future. The experience provides a launching pad for the family to get started with achieving some of the goals which builds parenting efficacy. It also clarifies what goals the family will need professional help with thus providing a starting point for early intervention services.

A full toolkit comes with the program

The toolkit includes multiple cards and boards designed to support parents expanding on ideas to create deeper and more meaningful (ie developmental, social, learning) children goals as well as family and personal goals for themselves.

The Pictability™ visuals were co-designed with families to build capacity and inspire wellbeing and flourishing (Adler & Seligman, 2016) – informed by evidence about how parents used Individualised Funding to achieve their goals (Mahmic & Janson, 2018).
