Supported Decision-Making: From Justice for Jenny to Justice for All
Tuesday, June 4, 2024
Topic:   Special Education
Sponsored by:   SST 3
Study after study has shown that when people with disabilities have more control over their life and make more decisions for themselves – when they have more self-determination – they have better lives. People with disabilities who are more self-determined are more likely to live independently, work, be integrated into their communities, and avoid abuse.

This session will introduce the audience to the theory and practice of Supported Decision-Making (SDM). When people with disabilities use SDM, they work with friends, family, and professionals so they can understand their choices and make their own decisions. Using the "Justice for Jenny" case as an example, we'll show you how SDM can help people be self-determined, have better life outcomes, and avoid unnecessary guardianship.
Audience:   Individuals with disabilities and their parents/caregivers/family members, and any others interested in Supported Decision Making from a family perspective
