Community Services and Supports for Adults with Disabilities: Evolving Approaches-WEB

ID: 3025WEB

Over the past years, the approach utilized in supporting adults with developmental disabilities has been evolving and changing from an institution-based service delivery system to a community-based system of supports and services. This has also led to shifting of roles and responsibilities for the professionals, from one of organizing services to working with a person to determine what they want in their life. In this webinar, participants will be presented with an overview of these changes, the current approaches to planning, and their impact on the delivery system. Participants will be given the opportunity to apply these planning methods as they look for ways to assist adults with developmental disabilities to plan their futures.
