Charting the LifeCourse

The National Community of Practice for Supporting Families of Individuals of I/DD has been working to develop systems of support for families throughout the lifespan of their family member with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Especially for individuals, families, and professionals are the Charting the LifeCourse materials, which include a LifeCourse toolkit in English and Spanish. The framework for Charting the LifeCourse was created BY FAMILIES to help individuals and families of all abilities and all ages 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.
