New Supported Decision Making Resource Manuals
The SC Supported Decision Making Project has published three new manuals to help families, service providers, and attorneys promote independence and navigate different alternatives to guardianship. The SC Supported Decision Making Project is a collaboration between Able SC, The Arc of South Carolina, Family Connection of South Carolina, and Protection and Advocacy for People with Disabilities, Inc. It began on July 1, 2016 and is funded by the South Carolina Developmental Disabilities Council. The SC Supported Decision Making Project seeks to increase awareness of Supported Decision Making in South Carolina and promote alternatives to guardianship that allow individuals with disabilities to retain control of their lives. Check out all of the resources at www.scsupporteddecisionmaking.org where you will find these new manuals to help individuals with disabilities, their families, and professionals working with them learn more about supported decision making and other alternatives to guardianship.
