This session will explore practical strategies for working directly with people who have disabilities to develop the skills and experience needed for decision-making. The presenters will identify and explore key concepts that professionals can use as guidance when they are assisting people to strengthen their decision-making abilities.

Learning objectives:

Participants will
• identify the elements of informed decision-making
• describe the essential responsibilities of providing support as a professional
• differentiate between the functions of assessing risk and managing liability concerns

Target audience: Professionals working directly with people who have disabilities
