Uncover Your Own Superhero: Guardianship and Supported Decision Making
Upon reaching adulthood, a person with a speech-related disability is faced with the decision of whether they need support to access the rights and privileges of adult life. But this is a decision that has to be entered into carefully and with an understanding of what it will legally achieve or limit. This lesson walks through the process in a way that can be discussed with young adults in order to make better decisions at this time in life.
