This webinar focuses on ways the landscape is changing and needs to change to allow for true citizen-directed lives. The current assumption that most people with intellectual/developmental disabilities require twenty-four hour, seven-day-a-week supports is both false and limiting. The vast majority of people both prefer and are better served through flexible, responsive approaches that encourage people to be in charge of their own lives, support them to make major and minor life decisions and to take full advantage of the rich resources communities have to offer. The webinar will discuss current trends and directions in the intellectual/ developmental disabilities field and the importance and possibility of people self-directing their lives and services.
