Thank you to everyone who attended and participated. If you weren’t able to make it, we missed you and hope to see you next time.
Here is what we talked about:
Charting the LifeCourse Framework Overview
In the morning, we kicked off the meeting with a brief overview of the LifeCourse framework and its principles. Watch the livestream: https://www.facebook.com/mofamily2family/videos/2105314396149039/
Trajectory toward Meaningful Day & Employment
At tables, attendees selected a target age group and created a trajectory toward either a meaningful day or employment.
Integrated Supports for Meaningful Day & Employment
Each table completed a star for what supports are needed to have a meaningful day or employment.
Case study: Susan’s Good Life at Transition
After lunch, attendees switched tables and then worked together to complete a Good Life Portfolio for Susan, a young woman with a hearing disability. The case study borrowed from a college educational class. Feedback from tables was that the Portfolio made thinking through and having a strengths-based conversation about Susan’s transition a lot easier.
Charting the LifeCourse Movement: Nationally and Here at Home
Sheli walked through how Charting the LifeCourse has spread across the country (and even the world) and how it started right here at home in Missouri, back in 2011 with a simple table in Microsoft Word.
Since so many awesome things are happening around Charting the LifeCourse (thanks to you!), we have had to have a lot of conversations internally at the IHD about formalizing our network.
MOF2F developed a proposed structure to sustain the broader stakeholder group and cover expenses since we are 100% grant-funded so that we can sustain the work of the stakeholder’s group and keep up with the demand for our offerings. We shared this at the meeting and it was positively received by attendees.
