Charting the LifeCourse Nexus or LifeCourse Nexus framework was developed by families to help individuals with disabilities at any age or stage of life and their families develop a vision for a good life. LifeCourse Nexus provides free infographics, YouTube videos and step-by-step tip sheets to help people of all ages and abilities with identifying their dreams and desires, thinking about what they need to know and do, identifying how to find or develop supports, and discovering what it takes to live the lives they want to live.

  • Person-centered tools for exploring your desires and unique needs
  • The family perspective booklet and tip sheets
  • Kits (The Life Domains) focusing on life stages and exploring employment, healthy living, housing options and other areas
  • Videos and step-by-step tip sheets on using the Integrated Supports Star tools to bring everything together
