Charting the LifeCourse (CtLC) is a foundation to assist individuals and families in creating a vision for the future. It is designed to help us think about the questions to ask as well as the choices and options to consider as we support people in “planning a course” to a full and meaningful life. It is intended to be a starting point no matter where the person is in their life journey.
Charting the LifeCourse helps professionals who serve individuals with complex needs: 1) to build upon their own understanding of the needs of individuals and families, and 2) as a tool to engage with families individually or in group settings. It is a guide for starting conversations about what individuals need to be successful and self-determined throughout their lives.
The training will be held Friday, April 26, 2019, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm at Capital Area Intermediate Unit, 55 Miller Street, Summerdale, PA 17055. The training will include an overview of the Charting the LifeCourse principles, participant application of the CtLC tools, and examples of how people are using CtLC in supporting people with complex needs.
The training will be presented by Lisa Meyer, who has years of national experience supporting state and local level disability systems, providers, case management, and educational organizations in developing and implementing strategies to support systems change — and embed best practices that support individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families to live purposeful and meaningful lives.
