When you choose the kinds of decisions you want support with, you should also choose the person or persons you want to give that support to you.
Supporters can be family members, friends, neighbors, teachers or direct support professionals (DSPs).

You could have one supporter or a number of supporters. For example, you might want your mom to support you with healthcare decisions, your dad to support you with decisions about money, your sister or a friend to support you with decisions about dating and relationships, or you might want one person to support you in all kinds of decisions.

It’s up to you! But be sure to choose people who know you well and who you trust.
