There are several options for making legal and life-changing decisions with your child once they reach the legal age of 18. One avenue growing in popularity amongst families who have a child with developmental disabilities is Supported Decision Making. Supported Decision Making is often defined as supports and services that help an adult with a disability make his or her own decisions by relying on trusted friends, family members, professionals, and others.
To shed some light on this topic, Ohio Family to Family and UCCEDD are hosting a free, 2-part workshop “Supported Decision Making Options and Tools” to give families the information they need to use this method of decision making. Participants will be given resources to work with between sessions so that they may get feedback during the second session and hopefully walk away with a plan of action.
Dates: April 12th and 26th
Time: 6:30 – 7:30 PM
Location: Virtual via Zoom platform
