SDMNY Facilitator Training
February 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
One event on February 8, 2019 at 9:00 am
SDMNY facilitators work one-on-one with persons with I/DD to help them create Supported Decision-Making Agreements with their chosen support persons. These Agreements are an important alternative to guardianship that may help persons with I/DD either avoid guardianship in the first place or make an important step towards regaining their rights.
Trainees will learn skills and strategies for working with persons with I/DD to guide them through the SDMNY three-phase facilitation process and create Supported Decision-Making Agreements. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided
Training will be held over two days, Feb. 1 and 8.
