Today I went to a really great presentation by the Missouri chapter of American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and I while I had doubts before going, I’m so glad I went. I went to a workshop on Guardianship put on by St. Louis Arc and at the time, I was very unsure of what to do.
The presentation, entitled “Beyond Guardianship: Supported Decision-Making by Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities” by Jonathan Martinis was well worth it. For me, I’m definitely feeling better of which direction to go. If you get a chance to hear him speak, I highly recommend it.
