Individuals with disabilities want to experience an enviable life—during adolescence and throughout adulthood. Professionals, families, and community members can each play a powerful role in supporting these important aspirations to become a reality all across Pennsylvania. This presentation will highlight what we know about what works best for supporting inclusion, relationships, and belonging throughout one’s life. Moreover, it will emphasize how the perspectives we hold, the postures we adopt, and the practices we prioritize can bend the trajectories of individuals with disabilities toward a future of flourishing.
