Relationships are an essential and intimate part of everyone’s daily
life, including individuals with developmental disabilities. Relationships and friendships not only encourage individual expression, dreams and passions but also provide important natural supports necessary to have

a good life in community. Individuals with developmental disabilities will never secure a safe
and meaningful life if the only people in their lives providing support are sta paid to be there. A principle role of sta hired by families through FMS must be to facilitate community engagement, membership and belonging to allow for the emergence of freely given relationships and friendships.

This session will explore:
• The meaning and power of natural pathways
• Strategies for community engagement and inclusion

through which relationships can emerge
• How to identify individual interests
• How families and FMS staff can facilitate and encourage

connections within the community
