Youth Reaching Age 18: Guardianship and Supported Decision Making
Reaching the age of 18 can be an exciting time for youth with disabilities and their families. It also is a time when many questions arise around their legal responsibilities and need for continuing support. We will discuss the variety of legal options available to support young adults in making critical life decisions around issues such as health care, finances, education, and school-to-adult transition. Come learn about adult guardianship and less-restrictive strategies for providing decision-making support, including Supported Decision-Making and Powers of Attorneys, among others. We also will debunk some of the myths surrounding these options, with the goal of fully informing families of the many ways to support youth with disabilities with decision-making in D.C.
