Event description
Decision-making is power. We shape our lives and explore our world through decisions. We translate our dreams into reality through decisions

About this Event

We all have a right to exercise decision making power but some people with disabilities face barriers. In this course we will explore how you can support a person as they negotiate those barriers, strengthen their decision-making power, and claim their independence.

In this workshop we will cover:

  • What is decision Making
  • Why supported decision making is important
  • The skills required to support self-advocacy and decision making

Decision making is a fundamental freedom. When we make decisions and choices we are expressing personalities, our beliefs, our political views, who we are as individuals. These decisions also reflect our goals and wishes.

Self determination is about having the freedom around making your own life choices, having the control to be able to do that.
