Upcoming Webinars for June 2020 - Maine Parent Federation

SELF ADVOCACY
Finding Your Voice

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24TH 11AM VIA ZOOM

Self Advocacy is one of the most important skills a young person with disabilities can have.  Join our Youth Coordinator Dylan Campbell as he explores ways you can find your voice and advocate for your own needs.

Dylan will provide you with tools and activities to identify and use your strengths to effectively self-advocate in school, community, social, and job settings.

Parents/In-Home Adult Support aides are welcome to participate if
needed.
SUPPORTED DECISION MAKING
Exploring Alternatives
to Guardianship

THURSDAY JUNE 18TH 11AM VIA ZOOM

Supported Decision Making is one of the many alternatives to Guardianship. As of September 2019, the probate code (the law that oversees Guardianship) was changed for the first time in decades. This webinar explores what the changes implemented in September 2019 mean for your family. 

Obtaining guardianship is a legal process where an individual is stripped of their rights, and another individual can now legally make their decisions. This option is not right for all families, and other options should be explored first. Join us as we discuss Supported
Decision Making and these other "Less Restrictive Alternatives" to guardianship.
