Charting the LifeCourse
Charting the LifeCourse (CtLC) helps individuals and families of all abilities and ages develop a vision for a good life. What do you need to know and do? How can you find or develop supports? What does it take to live the life you want? CtLC helps individuals and families think through these questions, and the framework is the foundation for supporting a community of learning that champions transformational change through knowledge exchange, capacity building, and collaborative engagement.

Community of Practice

This CoP is unique in Ohio because it focuses on all families with a member with a disability, not just those who receive formal supports.

“It’s not quite so difficult as learning a new language, but it was a new way of thinking for us. It was most definitely worth the time and effort, though, because now virtually every new experience, relationship, idea or plan Shannon encounters fits somewhere within the framework and is more easily assimilated into her life vision.”
“I just wanted to say thank you to the LC trainers at Synergy for allowing me to be open enough to explore the idea of my daughter driving. We are now enrolling her into drivers education!”
“I wish we had this info in the 60s and 70s. Re-emphasized my brother is more than his disability. I will work with J to plan for retirement and aging.”
