Virtual Book Study: Supported Decision Making @ On-Line/Virtual
Oct 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Supported decision making leads to self-efficacy, which reflects confidence in the ability to exert control over one’s own motivation, behavior, and social environment. 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.
