Meaningful and freely given relationships are essential to our wellbeing. Finding pathways to relationships is a lifelong journey. For people with developmental disabilities, it may require thoughtful reflection, strategic planning and intentional facilitation. Relationships and friendships open doors to new worlds, help discover self-identity and interests, and provides natural support when we need it. A significant role for staff hired by families through FMS or FSCD is not to be a paid friend, but to be the bridge to freely given friendships and relationships.
This session will explore:

The meaning and power of natural pathways
Capitalizing on individual interests and linking them to community opportunities
The role of the facilitator
Strategies for facilitating relationships in our community

Families, self-advocates, and FMS staff are welcome to attend.
