Supports and Services
Dan Stewart, Jamie Beck, and Melissa Keys will discuss the incredible journey that Jamie Beck took to achieve Supported Decision Making status, becoming the first person with an I/DD in Indiana to regain full capacity resulting in the termination of her guardianship. This session will offer guidance in replicating her accomplishments in any state. Dan and Jamie will discuss the details of her "journey" to obtain independence. Melissa Keys will share the types of legal support that her organization provided Jamie to complete this process. Participants will learn how they may duplicate this program in their community with the support of their state's Protection and Advocacy organization.
