Our Individual Council is designed to promote self-determination through a range of activities, including:

1. Providing opportunities for individuals to communicate and make personal decisions.

2. Empowering individuals to exercise control over the types of services and supports they receive.

3. Granting authority to individuals to manage resources for their needs.

4. Encouraging active participation and contribution to their communities.

5. Offering support, including financial assistance, for self-advocacy efforts and leadership development.

6. Facilitating involvement in the development of public policies that affect people with developmental disabilities.

Through these initiatives, we aim to create a supportive and empowering environment where individuals with developmental disabilities can thrive and lead fulfilling lives. To join us in our mission to promote self-advocacy and self-determination for all click here!
