This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty.

In 2018, the Georgia Advocacy Office funded by the DD Council began a project to bring Supported Decision-Making to Georgia. Building on a long history of Citizen Advocacy and community building efforts, the project brought together Citizen Advocates, Probate Judges, lawyers, families, the State Guardianship Office, self-advocates, and the community to create an alternative system to Guardianship. This presentation will feature the successes and lessons learned along the way. The project replicated and built on the successful Supported Decision-Making project in Massachusetts.
