Guardianship for Individuals with Intellectual Disability: Trends and Issues



Dr. Susan Marks will present an overview of the history of guardianship policies for individuals with intellectual disabilities along with an overview of national policies. The purpose of this presentation is to share how the history of guardianship policies are changing and what professionals need to consider when discussing and exploring options for guardianship to better align with principles of self-determination and the vision of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

Dr. Marks is a professor of special education at Northern Arizona University where she teaches in the special education teacher preparation program. She is also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. She received her doctorate from the University of Oregon in 1995, and has worked in the field of special education and developmental disabilities for more than 35 years.  During those 35 years, she worked in residential programs, rehabilitation programs, and school programs serving individuals with intellectual disabilities. Her advocacy interests led her to pursue a law degree, which she completed in December 2014.
