Supported Decision-Making is a tool people can use to make decisions with support from family, friends and other allies. It starts with
acknowledging that people with I/DD have the right to make their own decisions. Supported Decision-Making allows people with I/DD to
receive the support they need and want to understand the situations and choices they face, while maintaining their rights. Supported
Decision-Making mirrors how all adults make decisions. Autonomy means making ones own choices, learning to solve problems, and experiencing the consequences of making those choices.
