Finding the Right Fit - Supported Decision-Making as a Less Restrictive Option: Learn about the benefits of using Supported Decision-Making (SDM) as an alternative to guardianship.
- Ending Adult Guardianships (and considering less restrictive alternatives). Join Nick Clouse, his attorney Justin Schrock of Indiana Disability Rights, Judge Jerry Simoneaux of Harris County, Texas, and Sam Crane, Legal Director of Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities to learn about restoration of rights after guardianship.
- Adult guardianship cases are some of the most complex cases handled in civil and probate courts. While each state differs in qualifications, processes, and monitoring requirements, there are standards that can guide your court in developing robust practices that enhance both court efficiencies and oversight. This webinar, led by Dr. Brenda Uekert, is based on NACM’s Adult Guardianship Guide and provides action steps courts can take to improve guardianship practices. Concrete examples of innovative approaches and collaborative efforts are highlighted. Consideration is also given to the level of resources available to the court.
