North Dakota Protection & Advocacy Project

Supported Decision-making

“Supported Decision-making” is a model that prevents unnecessary guardianship, allowing individuals to make important life decisions and to stay in charge of their own lives. This is accomplished by utilizing “supporters” who provide them assistance, so they may understand options, responsibilities and potential consequences of their decisions. Their supporter helps them obtain and understand information relevant to their decisions and to communicate their decisions to the appropriate people.

The project is coordinated by Protection & Advocacy Project and funded by the ND State Council on Developmental Disabilities.
