The Arc has created the Center for Future Planning to support and encourage adults with I/DD and their families to plan for the future. The Center’s website (futureplanning.thearc.org) is the first step in achieving that goal.
The website provides reliable information and practical assistance to families and individuals with I/DD on areas such as person-centered planning, decision-making, housing options, financial planning, establishing daily activities, and making social connections. In addition, the website provides information to family members, friends, and professionals that support individuals with I/DD.
The Center also offers webinars to chapters of The Arc and other professionals who support people with I/DD to help them learn how to assist families in the future planning process. You can learn more about the resources the Center for Future Planning provides at futureplanning.thearc.org.
They hosted a webinar on Siblings and Future Planning that was presented by Katie Arnold, SLN Executive Director, and Kitty Porterfield, SLN member and chapter author of the Sibling Survival Guide. Check out the archived webinar here.
