Supporting Decision-Making: Assisting People to Make Better Decisions



Presenters:
Tina Campanella, MA, Quality Trust
Morgan Whitlatch, JD, Quality Trust

While SDM has become increasingly recognized as an option for decision-making support, there remains much work to be done to foster the widespread use of SDM in the day to day lives of people with disabilities. 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

This is an AAIDD webinar.
