Free Training Supported Decision-Making in Action

Do I HAVE to get guardianship? MUST I have a guardian?

We’ll help you answer these questions in a FREE half-day training*

Supported Decision-Making in Action Statewide on November 30, 2018

Do I HAVE to get guardianship? Parents face this question day after day as their children with intellectual, developmental and mental health disabilities get older. Some people think they have no choice, that guardianship is their only option.

MUST I have a guardian? Individuals with disabilities often have this question with nobody there to give them a straight answer. Most individuals feel they have no choice and others decide they need a guardian, limiting their ability to make decisions about their life and removing many of their civil rights.

It doesn’t always have to be this way.

Jonathan Martinis, advocate and nationally known expert, will teach us about Supported Decision-Making (SDM), a way for people with disabilities to make their own decisions and direct their own lives, with the help of friends, family and professionals. We’ll show parents how they can help their children, and individuals how they can get the support and services they need to lead their best possible lives.

Join us for a 4-hour workshop to learn if Supported Decision-Making is for you. The Boise venue is live with Mr. Martinis, other locations will be video conference.
