has traditionally been the default option for people who need help making
decisions. We now understand that some people can get the help they need
without the assistance of a legal guardian. Supported decision-making and other
alternatives to guardianship can offer a way for people to make their own decisions
even if they need extra help with the process. In this session we will describe
supported decision-making and other alternatives to guardianship. Additionally,
we will provide some examples of how real people are using supported
decision-making and offer some resources that can help anyone get started.
Primary Learning Objectives:
- Participants will understand the paradigm of supported decision-making.
- Participants will learn how people use supported decision-making in their lives.
- Participants will discover resources that can assist in the implementation of supported decision-making.
