2002: "It's My Choice" is Released

Family members, friends, social workers, service coordinators, service providers and advocates can help people with developmental disabilities get the services and supports they need to: (1) lead the lifestyles they prefer; (2) be more independent; and (3) be active members of the community.

They can do this by supporting people in their freedom of choice. This resource guide looks at ways to help people with developmental disabilities by:

  • Looking at individual needs
  • Planning for services
  • Evaluating services
  • Making things more understandable
  • Supporting self advocacy

It's My Choice
"It's My Choice" helped people with disabilities to express their own opinions about where they wanted to live, who they wanted to live with, and what they wanted to do with their days.
