Sib Talk (virtual)

The first Sib Talk of 2024 will be an introduction to Charting the LifeCourse (CtLC), and the Sib Talk series as we address resilience, grief, community support, and future planning. In our 2024 series, we want to offer an intuitive way to integrate the information you gather into real-life planning. “The Charting the LifeCourse framework was created to help individuals and families of all abilities and all ages develop a vision for a good life, think about what they need to know and do, identify how to find or develop supports, and discover what it takes to live the lives they want to live.”This makes Charting the LifeCourse the best tool for this job.


Our presenter, Barb Sapharas, is a Charting the LifeCourse Ambassador, DD Services veteran, and a sib who understands the sib experience. Prepare for a clear, easy-to-understand Charting the LifeCourse presentation that uses real-life examples, and focuses on ways CtLC tools might support self-discovery, life planning, and relationship building.
