With the right support, we can all make decisions.

The NDIA promotes choice and control. Having choice and control means your decisions are heard and respected. The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability explains the rights of people with disability to be recognised as equal under the law.

 

Supported decision making is where people who have disability get support to make their own decisions. Decisions happen in relationships.  You might remember the last time you made an important decision – did you talk with friends, family or someone else to help you decide?

 

People who communicate using gestures, facial expressions, or augmentative and alternative communication are sometimes not given the same opportunity to have a say about what is important to them and what they want to do in their life. The Decision Making Possibilities project is an adventure in what it takes to provide people with the support they need to make decisions.
