Self-Determination

Principles of Self-Determination:

FREEDOM -                The opportunity to choose where and with whom one lives as well as how one
                                   organizes all important aspects of one’s life with freely chosen assistance 
                                   as needed.

AUTHORITY -             The ability to control some targeted amount of public dollars

SUPPORT -                 The ability to organize that support in ways that are unique to the individual

RESPONSIBILITY -     The obligation to use public dollars wisely and to contribute to one’s community

CONFIRMATION -      The recognition that individuals with disabilities themselves must be a major part
                                   of the redesign of the human service system of long term care
