To successfully advocate for your best life, you must first construct a thoughtful strategy. In the very first webinar, Celia Schloemer from the University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCCEDD) gave us an overview of the Charting the LifeCourse planning methodology. In this final presentation of the series, she will work with Danielle Berg, a young woman born with spina bifida, to demonstrate the Charting the LifeCourse tool, guiding her from abstract life goals to a concrete action plan.
