Positive Partnerships is excited to launch its interactive Online Planning Tool. This is a brand new way of completing our Planning Tool resource. Many thousands of educators and families across Australia already use the Planning Tool to help understand the different areas that contribute to the lives of our young people on the autism spectrum. Now, we have an even more effective way of creating, using and sharing this valuable resource.

The Planning Tool has always been available as a downloadable document or in paper format. With our new Online Planning Tool, you can create your plan through our website from any device by following guided steps that support you from start to finish.

There are also additional resources throughout that will help you understand the key areas involved in the Planning Tool: strengths and interests, connections to culture and community, self-care and independence skills, social and communication skills, sensory processing, and executive functioning.

Because our Online Planning Tool is web-based, you can log on and access it from any device whenever is convenient. You can create as many plans as you would like and then share these through e-mail with those supporting the young person the plan is for. We've also created the Online Planning Tool in such a way that invites the voice of the young person to be included throughout the plan. Review dates can be easily set within the plan to help keep information and strategies current.

We held two live online walkthroughs recently to support the launch of the Planning Tool, where Dr Emma Goodall (Positive Partnerships, Manager of Content and Research) and Craig Smith (Positive Partnerships, Manager of Innovation and Research) demonstrated how to get started with the Online Planning Tool. You can watch a recording of one of these sessions here:
