take survey image
The National Resource Center on Supported Decision-Making is conducting a short survey about:
  1. Ways that people get help from family, friend, and other people to make decisions.
  2. How parents, friends, service providers, or others help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities make everyday decisions, informally or formally.
Questions to think about:
  1. Do you use supported decision-making?
  2. Do you get help making decisions, choosing what to do, or choosing where to live or work?
  3. Are you a supported decision-maker?
You may take the short survey about supported decision making at https://syracuseuniversity.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1NcT8O5stD0BOm1.

If you want to take this survey by phone or have a paper copy mailed to you, contact Celestia Ohrazda at cohrazda@law.syr.edu. For more information on the National Resource Center on Supported Decision-Making go to http://supporteddecisionmaking.org.
