Virtual Training: Informed Decision Making
In embracing a person-centered approach and supporting self-direction, people receiving supports need to be empowered to make their own choices. These ideals and practices of informed decision making are embedded into the NADSP Code of Ethics. Whether it involves relationships, privacy, sexuality, well-being, or other areas, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities should be supported in making informed decisions, while understanding the associated risks and responsibilities that are tied to those decisions.
The HCBS (Home and Community Based Services) Final Community Settings Rule will require that direct support professionals assist people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in making informed decisions. This is a high-level skill.
This Three Hour NADSP Virtual Training will teach best practices to show direct support professionals how to effectively assist people in making decisions. We will offer participants an overview of what informed decision making consists of. Finally, we will review a Five Step Process that can be utilized to ensure that when one is helping someone make an informed decision the final decision is that of the person supported and not anyone else.
