Monday, April 23, 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Presented by Fil Clissa
Supported decision-making is a set of strategies that helps individuals with disabilities have more control over their lives and futures. It involves family and friends working together with individuals to provide support in making complex decisions. Regularly involving young people with disabilities in decision-making will help them to make informed decisions and direct their own lives in adulthood.
