Charting the LifeCourse- Strategies and Tools for Planning a Good Life
Charting the Life Course was created for families by families in collaboration with the University of Missouri, is becoming enthusiastically recognized across the US, and is taking hold in NH! The Charting the Life Course framework promotes thoughtful conversations 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. You will leave this presentation with innovative yet practical strategies for person-centered planning that you can implement right away with your family members and other supporters!
