  • Morgan Whitlatch, Legal Director, Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities

This session will explore practical strategies for working directly with people who have disabilities to develop the skills and experience needed for decision-making. The presenters will also address and explore the practical, legal and policy issues that may need to be navigated for Supported Decision Making to work well as a support for many people with disabilities.

Learning objectives: Participants will

  • identify the basic elements of Supported Decision-Making
  • differentiate between the Supported Decision Making and “substituted” decision-making
  • describe the essential responsibilities for customizing support for people
  • examine the potential practical, legal and policy issues to address when implementing Supported Decision Making
