Using the Guide

Now you are ready to see the Guide to Future Planning.

In this section, we have the actual Guide to Future Planning. To help viewers understand how to use the Guide, we have provided examples from Jim and Mary.

There is also a blank version that you will use when you are ready to fill out the Guide and do your own future planning.

At the end of this section, you can download a copy of the blank version of the Guide. The Guide is available in PDF, Microsoft Word 97 and text-only versions.

As you fill out the Guide on your own, remember that this is much easier if you have a team working with you. The self-advocate needs to be the leader in deciding what goes on the form. If there are questions you cannot answer right now, don’t worry. Move on and you can come back to answering those questions later.
