The Basics of Supported Decision Making

January 12 at 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM

This webinar is part of the Paving the Way to Self Determination program.

For family/guardians

Every adult has the right to make life decisions, to direct their life and to be treated with dignity, as an autonomous adult. All adults need and get advice and counsel when making different life decisions. Many options, other than guardianship, are available to provide counsel, guidance, and assistance with making decisions. Person Centered Planning and Self-Determination require that adults with disabilities are respected and honored to make life decisions with the support and counsel, they need and to remain as independent and autonomous as possible. Multiple avenues are available to support individuals to make decisions and direct their own life. This presentation will discuss tools, that can be used to support people in decision-making while retaining their rights.

Presented by Mary Shehan – The Michigan DD Council
