Try Charting the LifeCourse Tools for Your Family

Integrated Supports Star

Identify the supports that your family member is using now, and think about other supports that might be helpful. The right supports can help ensure their quality of life. Using various supports in combination can help them achieve their vision of a good life.

Life Trajectory Tool

Create a vision for your family member’s good life. The Trajectory Planning Tool highlights the past life experiences that are leading or moving your family member away from their vision and then provide space for current goals and things to avoid moving forward.

Mapping Relationships

The Mapping Relationships tool will help you identify the different people and ways that they support you. Some of the people in your life might fulfill a lot of different roles while others might have only one significant role. It can help you have conversations about the future and who may fill those roles when others are no longer able.
