LifeCourse Training Sessions

April 6, 2022


LifeCourse Sessions have been scheduled to take place virtually (via Zoom) on Wednesday, April 6th


Have you ever felt stuck, or feel like you wish you could contribute more to the planning process for your family member or for the person and family you’re supporting? The Charting the LifeCourse Framework offers families and professionals a unique way of approaching the planning process.

The Charting the LifeCourse (CtLC) framework helps individuals and families develop a vision for a good life, think about what they need to know and do and identify how to find or develop support. It conceptualizes key principles to ensure that all people have the right to live, love, work, play and pursue their life aspirations in their community. Originally created for people with disabilities, this universally designed framework can be used for planning by any person or family, organization, or system, regardless of life circumstances or target population. View the full training flier.

This LifeCourse training will provide:

An overview of the foundations of the framework

An explanation of how to apply core principles in ways that enhance exploration, planning, decision-making and problem-solving

Information on how tools are being used to support individuals, families, organizations, educational and school systems, transition and employment, and Developmental Disability systems to integrate services and supports.

This training is for parents and families of individuals with disabilities as well as Case Managers and other I/DD professionals.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

Practice using two core principles

Begin developing a LifeCourse Portfolio for their son, daughter, or family member.
