What happens when a young adult with a disability turns 18?

Parents are often given different information from their teachers, doctors, and service providers, and unfortunately, many of these professionals have not been trained on all of the options.

Able South Carolina formed the SC Supported Decision Making Project with three of our community partners to make sure parents and professionals have access to information on how to best support individuals with disabilities with decision-making responsibilities in their adult life.

Contact us today to learn about guardianship, power of attorney, the Adult Health Care Consent Act, Supported Decision Making, and more!
