Self-Directed Services with DDS

 presented by DDS Self-Direction Manager Pamela Hickey, with Family Empowerment and Autism Connections 

Self-Directed Services from DDS offer the most flexibility to arrange and customize supports based on an individual’s needs and preferences.  The individual (or family) can make decisions about how to use the DDS funded allocation. These service models are for adults aged 22 and older. 

This webinar will review the following information:
-Why people choose to self-direct
-Principles of self-determination
-Types of Self-Direction: Agency with Choice,
-Comparison to traditional service model
-How to develop a plan
-Examples of Self-Directed service plan

This can be a tough topic to understand and can take multiple session to understand if this could be a good option for your loved one.  We hope you can join us.
