Supporting Real Lives Across the Lifespan
The Lifespan Project
The Lifespan project aims to connect people with a wide array of educational, disability, health-care and wellness resources available across South Dakota. The Lifespan folder itself offers contact information for many helpful organizations printed inside (click to access). In its physical form, the folder will carry several resources and tools tucked within. This web page will host as many of those tools as possible in electronic format.
Charting the Life Course
Throughout our lives, we face questions and search for answers that will help us on our journey to a full and meaningful life. This is true for everyone, especially when you or someone you care about experiences a disability or special healthcare need. Charting the Life Course: A Guide for Individuals, Families, and Professionals is a tool to assist you in creating a vision for the future (click to access). It is designed to help you think about the questions to ask as well as the choices and options to consider as you "plot a course" to a full and meaningful life. It is intended to be a starting point no matter where you are in your life journey.
