SDMNY Project Director Kristin Booth Glen presented to the NYS Transition Partners' learning community on a September 13, 2018 webinar. She discussed how parents of transition age children are often told they should or must get guardianship when their young person with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD) turns 18, even though guardianship means the loss of all legal rights and can be inconsistent with the independence parents want for their children. Supported decision-making is an emerging practice that allows people with I/DD to retain their rights while getting support from trusted people in their lives.
