Have you ever bought a car, accepted a job offer, or chosen where you want to live? Did you ask others for feedback about that decision? We rarely make decisions without talking to a friend, getting advice from an expert, or requesting insight from a family member. Consulting with those you trust is essential to making sound decisions, and you can strengthen self-determination in the lives of the people you support, through supported decision-making.
