Where do we go from here? What will the future hold? These are a few of the questions families ask when planning with their family members with developmental disabilities.
Experience shows that crafting a compelling vision for a meaningful life is one of the most potent and helpful means of ensuring a whole and inclusive life for your loved one with developmental disabilities. A clear vision serves as a guiding light, helps people stay focused and safeguards a life from a special and separate pathway. No matter someone’s age or stage of life, crafting or refining a future vision of a good life is a necessity.
Developing a life-enhancing vision, and refining this over time, requires intention, time and reflection. This session will provide an overview of creating a life-enhancing vision and describe the initial plans and actions needed to move forward when using formal support. In particular, how the flexibility and creativity allowed for by FMS or FSCD can be used to the advantage of families and their family members with developmental disabilities.
Families and FMS/FSCD staff are encouraged to attend.
