The Arc has created the Center for Future Planning® because we are committed to supporting families and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) as they plan for the future. This means creating a person-centered plan to help guide the person with I/DD to lead a good life as independently as possible. A plan is important throughout all stages of life and especially in the future after the parent or caregiver is no longer able to provide support. A person-centered plan keeps the person with I/DD’s interests, preferences, and skills as the main focus.
The Center offers webinars and other training sessions to help you learn how you can support families in the future planning process. Webinars will be archived and made available online. Please contact The Arc’s national office through our online form to suggest a topic for an upcoming webinar.
Completed webinars are recorded and made available for viewing after they occur. View the archived webinars from the Center’s webinar series.
