VKC UCEDD, Disability Rights Tennessee work together on 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 with the use of trusted people who provide advice and input on the decision-making process. Ultimately, SDM promotes independence, self-determination and self-advocacy.

Supported Decision-Making: Creating a Continuum of Choice is the result of the collaboration among disability organizations to educate about an emerging best-practice concept known as Supported Decision-Making (SDM).
