Webinar on August 8 – From Theory to Practice: Supported Decision-Making and Community-Based Supports

National Resource Center for Supported Decision-Making

From Theory to Practice: Supported Decision-Making and Community Based Supports
August 8, 2016
1:00 – 2:30pm EST

“To achieve the promise of community integration, we must ensure that older adults and people with disabilities are given full and equal opportunities to live, work, receive needed supports, and manage their own lives in the places and ways they choose. Even so, people with challenges in decision-making have historically been kept separate from their communities and had their rights taken away through overbroad or undue guardianship. In this webinar, panelists will discuss new and innovative ways for older adults and people with disabilities to receive community-based supports and services that can increase their self-determination, independence, and access to improved life outcomes.”

Presenters:

  • Erica Wood, assistant director of the American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
  • Marcia Tewell, director of the Colorado Developmental Disability Council
  • Jonathan Martinis, Senior Director for Law and Policy at the Burton Blatt Institute
