Guardianship is not your only option when it comes to supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

At the presentation you will learn:

  1. The differences between guardianship and supportive decision-making

  2. Identify strengths and needs of the individual

  3. Choose the right supports

  4. Create a supportive decision-making agreement

There will also be a discussion about our efforts to have the legislature require the courts to consider supported decision-making as a less restrictive alternative to guardianship.
