Connecticut Department of Developmental Services “Time for Transition” Guide


Charting the LifeCourse Experiences and Questions Booklet: Guide for Individuals, Families, and Professionals Throughout our lives, we face questions and search for answers that will help us on our journey to a full and meaningful life. This is true for everyone, especially when you or someone you care about experiences a disability or special health care need. Charting the LifeCourse is a tool to assist you in creating a vision for the future. It is designed to help you think about the questions to ask as well as the choices, options and life experiences to consider as you “plot a course” to a full and meaningful life. It is intended to be a starting point no matter where you are in your life journey. We hope this LifeCourse Experiences and Questions Booklet helps you realize that even when your child is very young, and wherever you are on the journey as he or she ages and grows into adulthood, their life experiences and environment can shape how they will live life in the future Booklet:
