Innovations Webinar Series Kickoff: Overview of the #LifeCourse Framework
INNOVATIONS IN SUPPORTING FAMILIES
COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE FRAMEWORK FOR SYSTEMS CHANGE WEBINAR SERIES
OVERVIEW OF THE LIFECOURSE FRAMEWORK
JANUARY 22, 2015
The LifeCourse Framework serves as the foundation of the Community of Practice. Watch this webinar to learn how the framework can be applied at the policy level, as well as a guide for service provision and planning.
The LifeCourse Framework was originally developed to help individuals with disabilities and families at any age or stage of life develop a vision for a good life, 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.
Even though the framework was developed for people with disabilities, it is designed universally, and could be used by any family making a life plan, whether they have a member with a disability or not.
