The McGill Action Planning System (also referred to as Making Action Plans or MAPS) is a supportive, strengths-based process that enables teams to understand each other and work together to support students in achieving their dreams. This process can work very well with all transitioning students with disabilities and their families, including those who are culturally and linguistically diverse (including refugees and immigrants), as it brings together school personnel, community members, and family members who support the student, and each participant can learn from the others. This article explains nine steps required to implement MAPS with families whose children have disabilities.
