Creating a “Village” in Transitioning Your son or Daughter to Inclusive Adult Living
Join webinar on Jan 12, 2017 at 6:30 PM CST.
In this session, Dr. Ann Turnbull will focus on a process for mobilizing a “village” comprised of family members, educators, other professionals, friends, and community citizens to work together on a regular basis over time in order to orchestrate significant and sustainable change. Ann refers to this process as Group Action Planning, and she will share her own family experience in using Group Action Planning to transform her son’s, Jay’s, life from the array of segregated adult services (sheltered workshop, group home, disability-only recreation) to inclusive community living (home of his own, supported employment, public transportation, sense of belonging throughout the entire community).
Using a detailed handout and video segments, Ann will highlight five components of Group Action Planning – Inviting Support, Making Connections, Sharing Great Expectations, Solving Problems, and Celebrating Success. She will provide many concrete suggestions for achieving the quality of life that your son or daughter deserves.
