Change rarely happens without intention. With a journal full of ideas, it’s time to take action.


Review the ideas listed in your journal and identify your priorities. What is feasible to start with in the next few months?

With each priority, list:

  • The steps you need to take to start?

  • Who will support you with each step?

  • Ask other people to help you if needed?

  • Be specific. List who will do what and by when?

Share your journal and dreams with others in your life - teachers, support workers and other family and friends.

It is beneficial to schedule a follow-up call or another get-together to update the group on progress made. If these conversations were of value, consider getting together and working through the conversations again.

As you have new experiences, your confidence will grow and you’ll be open to more and more new experiences. There are no limits to what is possible when a person, with the support of family and friends, is given a chance to take charge of their life.

Funding for Taking Charge of Your Life was provided by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services through the Strategic Program Investments Fund. This special fund was created out of the 2013 Class Action Suit Settlement to enhance the ability of people with a developmental disability to guide and influence decisions affecting them from a system and personal perspective.
