According to the author, Jonathan Martinis, this book is for “the people, parents, families, friends, professionals, and practitioners on the front lines who give and get the support we all need to lead our best lives.” The participants will learn how to apply and implement the principles of supported decision making with students with disabilities through the lens of the experience of Jenny Hatch and her pursuit for equity in her own decision making process in her adult life.
