An Overview of the Charting the LifeCourse Framework and Tools
The Charting the LifeCourse framework is an authentic grassroots activity, driven by the core belief that “all people have the right to live, love, work, play and pursue their life aspirations.” Driven by the quest to answer the question, “what do families need to know to support their family member with a disability across the lifespan,” the framework has evolved into a transformative human-centric movement impacting policies and practices across the country. The framework helps individuals and families of all abilities and all ages 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.
