Planning for the Future of a Loved One with a Disability: Is Your Family Prepared?
Future Planning Workbook: A Roadmap of Our Futures, Our Wishes
A grant project awarded to the Sonoran Center for Excellence in Disabilities
Future Planning: A Roadmap of Our Futures, Our Wishes is a workbook about how to facilitate future planning.
This involves gathering information, exploring choices, sharing dreams, documenting wishes, reaching goals, and creating a written plan. It includes plans for the person with a disability and for caregivers as their roles change over time.
This roadmap is designed as a tool to be used by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, family members, direct support professionals, and advocacy groups to guide the planning process.
The creation of this Roadmap has had a journey of its own. It began in 2007 when families in Arizona shared their thoughts about future planning through interviews and focus groups. In 2016, more than 60 individuals with disabilities and family members participated in another future planning study for an updated book.
