Empowering families and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout Ohio.

Who We Are

The Family Resource Network of Ohio is here to help families by providing resources, tools, and trainings.

We use Charting the LifeCourse Framework to help individuals and families of individuals with developmental disabilities support each other in the pursuit of the good life. Together, we can achieve great things.

Charting the LifeCourse

Charting the LifeCourse Framework was created to help individuals and families of all abilities develop a vision for a good life, think about what they need to know and do, identify how to find or develop supports, and discover what it takes to live the lives they want to live. Individuals and families may focus on their current stage of life but may also find it helpful to look ahead to experiences that will move them toward an inclusive, productive life in the future.


Explore the principles that guide the framework.

Community of Practice

Partnering with families and stakeholders for lasting change in the systems that serve people with intellectual/developmental disabilities.


Practical tools for planning, problem-solving and thinking about what you want now or in the future. These tools can be used by anyone, either on their own or with people who support or care about them.


We want to support you in the best way possible through a variety of trainings, from basic skills to ways to organize thoughts and ideas, confidence-building and empowerment so that those with IDD can convey their wants and needs and vision for the future.
