Join us for a workshop with national Supported Decision Making expert, Jonathan Martinis, from the Burton Blatt Institute. Jonathan will explain what Supported Decision Making is, how to use it, and how and why it can be a better than guardianship for many people. This is a “must see” session for anyone considering legal authority issues as someone with a disability approaches or navigates adulthood.
