Ms. Davenport is a People Planning Together Peer to Peer trainer. Although all are welcome to her presentation, she really wants to reach out to other people labeled with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. (IDD). People with IDD can be a great risk of getting COVID 19 because some people live in large care facilities making it harder to follow the safety rules.
Ms. Davenport plans to talk about how important it is for people to speak up and let other people know what they need if they get sick. To advocate for themselves. Part of speaking up for yourself is putting together a One Page Profile that makes it clear what is important to the person, the supports they need and their medical needs.
Family members and support staff are encouraged to attend to support people to develop their One Page Profiles. Family members and support staff should also develop a One Page Profile to make sure others know about what they need.
