Workshop – Charting the Life Course to a Good Life for All

The DDRB is hosting a workshop presented by Missouri Family 2 Family LifeCourse Network at UMKC Institute for Human Development on May 10, 2016 from 10:00am-3:00pm at the DDRB office.

This workshop is for self-advocates, family members, support coordinators, providers, early intervention and health care providers, family groups, planners, teachers, recreation programs, state/county staff and general community.

Participants will learn about the “LifeCourse Framework” and the roles we hold in our day-to-day lives to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This interactive, hands-on workshop will explore the effect of past and current policies and practices of the disability service system on available supports; highlight the significant role families’ play across a family member’s lifespan, and real life examples and strategies that can be used to impact the trajectory towards a “good life”. Admission and materials are free; however, there is a cost for lunch ($10 per person). Contact Robyn Peyton, for details.
