“Your child has a disability.” While regularly uttered in doctor’s offices, classrooms, and clinics, it is rarely done so with celebration and hope. How families and the professionals who work with them think and talk about disability has a profound and long-lasting impact on the life trajectory of the person with a disability. Compound the stigma of disability with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), complicated and disconnected service systems, and children with disabilities become increasingly vulnerable. All families, especially those involved in child welfare, can benefit from coaching about how to navigate service systems, where to access formal and informal support and resources, and how to effectively advocate for their children. Using an innovative national framework called Charting the LifeCourse, this training will present tools that can be used in their lives as well as the lives of the families they serve. This training will utilize role exercises and small and large group discussions.
