Join us to learn about the Charting the LifeCourse.  We will learn about tools that can be used at every life stage to enhance a person-centered approach for planning and supporting life experiences that support a person to reach their vision of a “good life.”  

 

Charting the LifeCourse is a framework that was developed to help individuals and families of all abilities and at any age or stage of life develop a vision for a g ood life, think about what they need to know and do, identify how to find or develop supports, and discover what it takes to live the lives they want to live. 

 

This 2-day interactive, hands-on Summit will:

  • Highlight the use of Charting the LifeCourse in Supported Decision Making and the IEP process
  • Highlight the significant role families play in their children’s lives across the lifespan
  • Provide real life examples and strategies that can be used to impact the trajectory towards a “good life”
  • Provide additional workshops on sexuality education, benefits planning, future planning, and assistive technology!

 

Who should attend: Family members, self-advocates and professionals supporting families and individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities.


Cost: Free for families and individuals with disabilities. $25.00 for professionals.

 

Dates: March 17-18, 2020 [10AM-3PM]
