April 17, 2013
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM   (Eastern)
The Southeast Regional Consortium and AUCD will present a webinar, “Who’s in Charge: Decision-making Options for Young Adults with Intellectual Disabilities,” April 17, 2013.

It should be narrowly tailored to meet the needs of the individual and should not restrict any more rights than absolutely necessary. The webinar will: provide an overview of adult guardianships, including the functional purpose of guardianship and the legal standard for appointment of a guardian; describe factors to consider when deciding whether to pursue full guardianship or whether to use a less restrictive alternative; and discuss the importance of preserving and promoting maximum independence in all cases.
