Supported Decision-Making: From Justice for Jenny to Justice for All!
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 you 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. As a result, SDM can help people be self-determined, have better life outcomes, and avoid unnecessary guardianship.

Who should attend this webinar:

-- Anyone interested in guardianship alternatives
-- Parents, advocates, friends and siblings of persons with IDD
-- Teachers, transition coordinators and anyone working with individuals with IDD
-- Attorneys and those working in legal and benefits settings
-- Self-Advocates

This webinar is a collaboration with the Southern Illinois Transition Project in partnership with the Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities, the Illinois Association of Microboards and Cooperatives (IAMC) and The Star Raft Project.
