Charting the LifeCourse
DODD supports Charting the LifeCourse Ambassadors throughout the state who introduce this framework to families, schools, providers of service, community businesses, and county boards of developmental disabilities. These sessions teach the tools and principles families and organizations need to support people at any age or stage of life, develop a vision for a good life, think about what they need to know, identify how to find or develop supports and discover what it takes to live the lives they want to live.
LifeCourse framework helps people and families of all abilities, and at any age or stage of life by supporting them to
- develop a vision for a good life,
- think about what they need to know and do to achieve their vision,
- identify how to find or develop supports as they work toward their vision, and
- discover what it takes to live the lives they want to live.
The LifeCourse Framework operates under the core belief that all people have the right to live, love, work, play, and pursue their life aspirations.
