Supported Decision-Making

Supported Decision-Making

Supported Decision-Making: Creating a Continuum of Choice is a white paper that highlights an emerging best-practice known as Supported Decision-Making (SDM). SDM provides a framework for broadening the choices available to people with disability who need help making decisions. Unlike existing options, which include conservatorships and Powers of Attorney, SDM allows the person with a disability to maintain their right to make decisions about their life while offering a structured support system that provides advice and input. Ultimately, SDM promotes independence, self-determination and self-advocacy.
