Yesterday, the first article about the Charting the LifeCourse framework, Charting the Life Course for Persons with IDD and their Families: Moving from Principles to Practice, was published in the Social Innovation Journal. a regionally focused, volunteer-driven online publication and knowledge lab dedicated to social innovators and entrepreneurs in Pennsylvania.
The article was written by MIchelle C. Reynolds, PhD, from the UMKC Institute for Human Development, UCEDD, and Yoshiko Kardell, MSW, at HSRI. The article walks readers through the development of the framework, from its beginning stages in 2011, how the framework spread across the country through the vehicle of the National Community of Practice for Supporting Families of Individuals with I/DD, and how the framework is moving from principles to practice in more than 17 states.
We are excited to share the article with you! Please let us know what you thought about it by commenting on this post!
