A2G and SDM in AZ: Understanding Alternatives to Guardianship and the new Supported Decision-Making Law June 4, 2024 at 2:00 pm

Disability Rights Arizona (formerly Arizona Center for Disability Law) is a not for profit public interest law firm, dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals with a wide range of physical, mental, psychiatric, sensory and cognitive disabilities, who together with the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council and Native American Disability Law Center created the Legal Options Manual, a guide to advise individuals, families and caregivers about different legal options for adults with a disability who need assistance – all with a goal of preserving as many rights as possible. The Legal Options Manual, the Supported Decision-Making Law in Arizona, and the expertise gained through participation in the Youth Ambassador Program through The Center on  Youth Voice, Youth Choice (CYVYC) are the evidence-base upon which this session is built.
