What is Charting the LifeCourse?
Where it began: The Charting the LifeCourse framework was developed by families 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.
Where we are now: The Charting the LifeCourse framework was expanded as it was recognized to be useful to all populations. The framework and tools will help you organize your ideas, vision, and goals, as well as problem-solve, navigate, and advocate for supports.
The Charting the LifeCourse framework is driven by the core belief that “all people have the right to live, love, work, play and pursue their life aspirations.”
The Charting the LifeCourse framework evolved within a collaborative process led by the Institute for Human Development at the University of Missouri –Kansas City, a University Center for Excellence (UCEDD) in partnership with many different national and statewide stakeholders.
