Charting the Life Course

chartinglifecourse

HAVE YOU THOUGHT SERIOUSLY ABOUT YOUR CHILD'S FUTURE AS AN ADULT WITH A DISABILITY?

  • Where is s/he going to work?
  • Where is s/he going to live?
  • What will s/he do in his or her free time?
  • How will s/he participate in the community?
  • How can you assure his/her safety and well-being if something happens to you?

If your son or daughter is as young as 14 years of age, it is never too early to start.
If your son or daughter has already "aged out" of public schools services and has no real quality of life, it's never too late.

This is an intensive 8-hour learning opportunity for families of adolescents and young adults with disabilities who are aged 14 and older to get them going on effectively PLANNING and TAKING APPROPRIATE STEPS TOWARD the most positive future possible for their loved one with a disability, especially if that loved one is likely to need long-term supports to achieve valued life outcomes. Adolescents and young adults themselves are invited, also, but it's going to be a lot like being in school!

PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND BOTH PARTS 1 AND 2 TO GET THE FULL BENEFIT OF THE INFORMATION THAT WILL BE COVERED:

Part 1 -- Tuesday, May 23, 2017 -- from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

AND

Part 2 -- Saturday, May 27, 2017 -- from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Both parts of the training will be held in the Community Room of the Killingly Public Library at 25 Westcott Road, Killingly, CT 06239.

If you have any questions, please call the UCEDD at 860-679-1500, Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Advance Registration Required.
