PATH & MAPS: Person-Centered Ways to Build Community

April 28-30 from 9am-4pm at the Schaumburg Township Building. (1 Illinois Blvd, Rm 310).
Join us for this three-day hands on workshop to learn how to facilitate PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope) and MAPS (Making Action Plans). This dynamic training is for educators, case managers,self-advocates, family members, therapists, advocates, or anyone working with persons with disabilities (adults and children), in mental health, life coaching or with a person experiencing a life transition.

The workshop is facilitated by the Illinois Association of Microboards and Cooperatives (IAMC),an organization that provides technical assistance, education, advocacy, and training to benefit individuals with disabilities to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives as valued members of their communities.

PATH and MAPS are useful tools to help streamline and set goals for IEPs and Personal Plans while keeping the person the center of any formal plan. This process focuses on a vision for a positive and possible future while maximizing a robust circle of support to lead a full and inclusive life in the community.
