The Future is Now: A Future Planning Training Curriculum for Families and Their Adult Relatives with Developmental Disabilities

The Future is Now: A Future Planning Training Curriculum for Families and Their Adult Relatives with Developmental Disabilities (2010). Factor, A., DeBrine, E., Caldwell, J., Arnold, K., Kramer, J., Nelis, T. & Heller, T.
This curriculum equips families and their adult relative with a disability with the communication skills and information to jointly plan for the future.
Participants learn how to overcome the emotional and systematic barriers to planning with the support of peer mentors who have made plans. They prepare a letter of intent that lays out their dreams for the future and identifies the steps required to transform this dream into a reality. This state-of-the-art approach to future planning was developed, implemented and evaluated by the RRTCADD. It is an excellent resource for agencies, family organizations and advocacy groups. The Future is Now received a National Alliance for Caregiving 2008 innovative program award. The revised third edition broadens the training’s focus to include adult siblings without disabilities in the planning process and contains an updated and expanded resource list. It comes with a CD-ROM so that users can easily replicate copies of handouts for class exercises and homework assignments, English and Spanish versions of the letter of intent, and assessment tools.
