Supported Decision Making as an Alternative to Guardianship

Parents of transition age children are often told they “should” or “must” get guardianship when children with I/DD reach 18, but guardianship means the loss of all legal rights, and is inconsistent with the self-determination parents want for their children. Supported decision-making is an emerging practice that allows people with I/DD to retain all their rights while getting support in their decisions from trusted persons in their lives. In this webinar you will learn about supported decision-making and an exciting project sponsored by DDPC, SDMNY that is facilitating supported decision-making in a number of sites around New York.
