October Tip of the Month

“Where do I begin”? is a question often asked by families thinking about creating a meaningful life for their son or daughter when using Family Managed Supports funding.  Families who have used Family Managed Supports suggest a vision is the first step to creating a meaningful life. Developing a vision helps families understand the supports necessary to support the vision. Wendy Stove (2007) suggests “Having a vision for the life of a person with a disability is really about claiming the right to ordinary dreams…and believing that they can happen.”
