Upcoming Webinar: Supported Decision-Making and the ABLE Act, “Achieving Better Life Experience”

National Resource Center for Supported Decision-Making

The National Resource Center for Supported Decision-Making will be hosting Part III of their webinar series: The Next Generation of Freedom and Self-Determination: Moving Support Decision-Making from Theory to Practice.

June 17, 2015
1:00pm-2:30pm EST

“The Achieving Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act breaks new ground in exploring opportunities for eligible individuals with significant disabilities to rethink their future goals regarding work, income saving and investment, and community participation. The beneficiary of an ABLE account is also the owner of the account. Over 25 states are now considering legislation to set a framework for the establishment and administration of ABLE Accounts. Who will make decisions about savings goals and disbursements from ABLE accounts? Are there less restrictive options for account owners than guardianship and the removal of decision-making authority?”

Presenters:

  • Lisa Mills, Public Policy Chair, TASH
  • Allison Wohl, Executive Director, APSE
  • Jonathan Martinis, Legal Director, Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities
