February 23, 2017 Xenos Christian Fellowship

1390 Community Park Dr, Columbus, OH 43229 10:00am-3:00pm

Join us as we welcome:

Jane St. John, Missouri UCEDD (University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities)

Barbara Brent, Director of state policy, NASDDDS (National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services), members of the National CoP team, to learn about the “LifeCourse Framework”

What is the Charting the LifeCourse?

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 good 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. Individuals and families may focus on their current situation and stage of life but may also find it helpful to look ahead to start thinking about life experiences now that will help move them toward an inclusive, productive life in the future. The framework is designed to help any citizen think about their life, not just individuals known by the service system.

This interactive, hands-on workshop will:

  • Highlight the significant role families play in their members with disabilities lives across the lifespan

  • Explore the effect of past and current policies and practices of the disability service system on available supports

  • Introduce the LifeCourse Framework as a foundation for working with individuals with disabilities and their families to achieve a “good life”

  • Provide real life examples and strategies that can be used to impact the trajectory towards a “good life”.

Who’s Invited?

Any family member interested in learning new ways to plan and work toward a good life -- and staff who work with families and are interested in learning new approaches to supporting families.
