ASAN’s Invitational Summit on Supported Decision Making and the Transition into the Community: Summary, Conclusions, Recommendations

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network held an Invitational Summit on Supported Decision-Making and the Transition to the Community on October 18th and October 19th, 2016. These two reports are the product of that summit.

The first report, “Summary Paper: ASAN’s Invitational Summit on Supported Decision-Making and the Transition into the Community“, discusses the purpose of the summit, the structure of the summit, and the outcomes and conclusions reached by its end.

From the summit and a series of follow-up interviews, ASAN derived recommendations for how self-advocates, lawyers, parents, government officials, and other stakeholders can use supported decision-making to decrease institutionalization and improve the integration of people with disabilities into the broader community. The follow-up report, “ASAN’s Invitational Summit on Supported Decision-Making and Transition to the Community: Conclusions and Recommendations” provides recommendations for the use of supported decision-making in four aspects of successful community living: Housing, Relationships and Natural Supports, Healthcare, and Long-Term Services and Supports.
