Create a Vision for a Good Life with planning tool

Do you want to learn how to create a good life for yourself or a person you love?  Have you checked out the Charting the Life Course Framework?

This tool was created by families to help individuals of all abilities and ages -- and their families -- develop a vision for a rewarding life.  It helps participants 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.

Individuals and families can focus on their current situation and stage of life, but may also look ahead to develop a plan for an inclusive, productive life in the future.  The framework can be used by any person or family making a life plan, regardless of circumstances.

To learn more about Charting the Life Course, visit  You can also attend Ohio's Supporting Families State Community of Practice event meeting October 16 at the Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities, or tune into the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities' Facebook page at 10 a.m. that day to watch a Facebook Live broadcast about the Framework.
