This paper discusses the 'person by person' project in Melbourne which works to empower families to create a vision for their children based on each individual's unique talents and abilities. Professionals should be creative and flexible, trying to develop 'right' relationships for the individual at the interactional and structural levels. Emphasis is placed on negotiation of support arrangements which are geared towards meeting individual needs, so that individual dreams can be fulfilled.
