Informed Choice Toolkit

Two people are sitting, engaged in a conversation. One person is talking, with a big smile.

Everyone has the right to make decisions about their own lives. Increased decision making is associated with a higher quality of life. Still, some people may need support to determine what's best for them. That's where you come in.

This toolkit will help you understand the informed choice standard and how you can help people with disabilities lead inclusive lives. It will also introduce you to supported decision making tools to help people get the support they need to control their own lives.

As a support planner, you can make sure the people you support have the opportunity for meaningful choice and self-determination. You can also make sure their civil and legal rights are affirmed and respected.
