The 'Plan My Future' Curriculum.
Module 1 is about connecting with yourself, connecting your family member with a disability, and connecting with others that know your family member well. We do this so that you can utilize your family's strengths, and to get a deep understanding of your family member with a disability so that the plan you build is in alignment with who they are!
Module 2 is about enhancing your family member's capability! You’ll empower your family member and accelerate their growth & independence, and create more interdependent relationships so they are less dependent on super-mom & dad.
Module 3 is about building and deepening relationships so that your family member can increase their feeling of belonging, have a more connected and enriched life, and increase their future stability beyond the immediate family.
Module 4 is all about enhancing our family member's contribution to society! When we are contributors to society we experience a greater sense of meaning in our life, we are viewed more positively by others, and we get access to more opportunities!
Module 5 is about creating a home that is absolutely best for our family member! Home is more than just the physical building, so we will identify all of the elements of home that are important to your family member and design the best home for them! This module is all about moving your family member forward toward having a home that they can call their own!
Support & Finance
Module 6 is about support and finances! The reality is that we need the right supports to make our 5-year vision a reality! You will learn about getting the right supports with your family member, how to maximize your supports, and you will start to build your financial plan for the future.
Module 7 is about creating more awesome in your family member's life! We all want to experience fun, adventure, love, nature, health, and the other awesome things life has to offer! We will be building a 5-year vision for all of these areas as well! This module also guides you on how to start implementing your new awesome plan!!!

Will the 'Plan My Future' Coaching Program apply to where I live geographically?
Yes! Because these principles and tools are universal and based in social models, they apply regardless of where you live on our planet. Also, I've found that no matter where our family lives - we have commonalities with each other... and because of that there are 'Plan My Future' Community members connected together from Canada, to the US, to Australia. Also, because we are a global community we all benefit from a bigger diversity of ideas!
Is 'Plan My Future' a reimbursable expense with Passport funds? (Ontario, Canada)
Yes! With the 'Plan My Future' Coaching Program I provide professional feedback on your person-directed plan (5-year vision), which qualifies Plan My Future as an eligible expense under Passport funding in Ontario, Canada. So far there is a 100% expense approval for Plan My Future by Passport. If your expense claim is refused I will personally call your administrator to get the expense approved. If your expense is still not approved I will immediately provide you a full refund. I give you my 100% money-back guarantee that you will not be out of pocket, if you are submitting your receipt from Empowering Ability to Passport.
I am not very tech savvy - How will the technology work?
If you are reading this webpage right now you already have the technology skills that you need to be successful inside the 'Plan My Future' Coaching Program.
This experience has successfully been completed by many people that do not consider themselves to be 'techies'. You will receive emails and videos that guide you step-by-step, and there is always someone that can personally help you if you need tech support.
I live outside of Ontario, Canada. Can I reimburse 'Plan My Future' with social assistance funds?
It depends on what expenses are eligible for reimbursement with your social assistance funding. If you want to reimburse the course as an expense through your social assistance funds it is recommended that you verify that the course will be a qualified expense with your social assistance administrator. If person-centered planning is an eligible expense for your social assistance funding, then 'Plan My Future' should be considered an allowable expense because I include feedback on your plan.
