Stakeholders Meeting

Supported Decision-Making Stakeholders Meeting

Disability Rights Maryland (DRM) invites people with disabilities, their supporters, providers, and others to meet and discuss supported decision-making (SDM).

SDM is a process by which people pick others who they know and trust to assist them in making, communicating, and effectuating decisions. It is gaining traction as a legal alternative to guardianship across the country and around the world. Whereas under guardianship, guardians make decisions for a person, under supported decision-making agreements the person retains the ability to make decisions for themselves with support.

Legislation to establish SDM in Maryland will be discussed. Learn more about supported decision-making and how it may work for you, and provide input on what you see as important in a supported decision-making law.

When:    December 7, 2018
2:00-5:00 p.m.

Where:    Hussman Institute for Autism
5521 Research Park Drive
Catonsville, MD 21228
