Supported Decision-Making: Evening Session

We believe...

  • An individual's right to make decisions about his or her life is fundamental to a full life.
  • Communication challenges should not be misinterpreted as lack of interest, desire, or competency to make decisions.
  • Families should have access to information about all options for supporting their family member to make decisions.
  • People with intellectual disabilities should have access to decision-making supports that promote respect, dignity, and personal autonomy in the areas of health care, person-centered planning, and independent living.

Join us to learn about Supported Decision-Making.

Through Supported Decision-Making, individuals with disabilities choose trusted people to support them in making their own decisions. Learn more from Morgan Whitlatch, a nationally renowned expert in disability law who has dedicated her career to working with and on behalf of people with disabilities.

Please note that space is limited for these free events. RSVP online at or by calling (847) 328-2044.
