IL Philosophy & Self Directed Services (PTWTSD)
October 19 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
This webinar is part of the Paving the Way to Self Determination program.
For family/guardians & ages 12 and under.
Independent living philosophy includes directing, or in the case of young people – learning to direct, one’s life. This webinar will help families and youth understand the concepts behind the Independent Living Philosophy and selecting supports. Youth will participate in a fun independent living activity. Adults will continue with training in exploring support options. If you or your son or daughter receive Community Mental Health services, you can control how the money for your services is spent by using an independent budget and financial management services. This option is called self-directed services for adults, choice waiver services for children, or sometimes self-determination. Partners Advancing Self-Determination will cover the basics.
