Experience shows that adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) make better transitions from the family home when a person-centered future plan is in place. But what is a future plan? The concept of future planning and what it entails is still not widely understood by many families and human services professionals. Join The Arc Wisconsin, in partnership with The Arc’s Center for Future Planning, for a three-part, live, online training series for professionals on supporting families to future plan.
This training series is designed for professionals who support families to future plan and is not open to family members at this time.
Part 1: Future Planning 101
Tuesday, October 11, 2022 (12:00 - 1:15 pm CT)
We will review the basics of future planning.
Part 2: Build Your Plan Facilitation Tools
Thursday, October 20, 2022 (12:00 - 1:15 pm CT)
We will cover how to build a plan and future planning materials that can be used when assisting families.
Part 3: State Resources
Tuesday, October 25, 2022 (12:00 -1:15 pm CT)
We will review state funding resources to assist with meeting the needs of people with IDD.
Registered participants who attend all three training sessions will receive a certificate of completion and will be added to our future planning resource directory: (https://futureplanning.thearc.org/professionals/landing)
These trainings have been made possible with the generous support of the CUNA Mutual Group Foundation: (https://www.cunamutual.com/about-us/cuna-mutual-group-foundation).
