Self-Determination, Person-Centered Planning & Charting LifeCourse

"Inclusivity means not just we’re allowed to be there, but we are valued."

-Claudia Brind-Woody

What do you want your life to look like in five years? What is important to you? Where do you want to live? Do you want a job? Do you want to go to college or a training program? If you would like people to support you, who are those people? In what areas of your life would you like support and where would you like to be independent?
