Morgan K. Whitlatch, legal director of Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities and project director of the National Resource Center on Supported Decision-Making presents: "Supported Decision-Making: What, Why, and How."

Description: Fearless people support each other! Come learn about Supported Decision-Making, a recognized alternative to guardianship, through which people with disabilities use friends, family, and professionals to help them understand the situations and choices they face, so they can make their own decisions. Find out about what Supported Decision-Making means in practical, every-day terms; why it is important; and how it can be used in health care, school-to-adult transition, person-centered planning, and independent living.
