Description

As adults with developmental disabilities look for more opportunities to be fully included in community life, it is incumbent on the service system to change how supports are delivered. Efforts to increase the availability of person directed models of support have been implemented across Pennsylvania to help provide people with more options and greater control over their lives. The availability of more options is a benefit to many, and it is important that people are supported to navigate the system and hire, train, and manage their own staff. This session will describe the basic principles of person-directed supports and services, the benefits of supports brokerage, and how these supports can assist people in leading self-determined lives.
