National Goals for Supporting Families Across the Life Course

The family has been and will continue to be the backbone of our long-term service systems and supports.

This month in the December issue of Inclusion, a consortium of authors, including CoP project co-director, Sheli Reynolds, PhD, and NASDDDS executive director, Mary Lee Fay, described three goals related to supporting families across the life course and provided a rationale, areas of research to address the goals, and implications for policy and practice for each goal.
