This invaluable tool is specifically designed to empower young people with an intellectual or developmental disability, and their families, to shape a brighter future. Typically spanning two hours, this exercise encourages the person with a disability, with necessary assistance, to articulate their vision for the future and set specific short-term goals.

The individual and their family decide who should participate in this exercise, and a skilled facilitator leads the planning session. A graphic recorder captures the vision, goals, and action steps on a large wall-mounted canvas. This planning exercise consists of eight essential steps. Our New Brunswick team of dedicated individuals has been trained to serve as facilitators and recorders for the PATH process. For further details on the PATH process or to connect with facilitators in your local area, please reach out to us. We’re here to support your journey towards a brighter future.
