Supported Decision Making: Freeing Individuals to Live Their Most Productive Lives
Sara Sherman, Sara Sherman International
Tuesday, January 17, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88193948164?pwd=dUhxNHpLNVpMZWoyWEREaHVGTUsyZz09

About the Session: Do you feel like, sometimes, your staff create more dependence than independence?

Do you wish your DSPs were better at supporting individuals to make decisions in their lives?

Would you like to see better results around individual outcomes?

We all know that the goal for the individuals we serve is to increase independence through skill acquisition, but in those day to day moments when decisions are made and supports are provided, the needle sometimes doesn’t move any closer to independence, if it moves at all.

In this workshop agency leaders will learn how to teach DSPs to support individuals in ways that:

  • Expand an individual’s level of independence
  • Empower individuals to develop decision making skills
  • End unnecessary dependence on staff
  • Get excited about helping individuals to develop, grow, learn, and reach their outcomes…and make it happen
  • Recognize and celebrate wins
  • And help the individuals you serve to gain self-confidence and feel better about who they are…’cause they are fantastic!

Health Risk-Informed Telemedicine: A Model for Improving Health Equity for People with I/DD
Maulik M. Trivedi, StationMD
Wednesday, January 25, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88654878140?pwd=MmRvVktORDZDT0lDMXAxd3JpUlVxZz09

About the Session: Equitable access to telemedicine and other health care services is a challenge for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) because most clinicians are not aware of the unique health risks that exist for this population. As a result, the health conditions most likely to result in morbidity and mortality are overlooked or misdiagnosed.

This presentation highlights an innovative model and public/private partnership between IntellectAbility, StationMD, and the Missouri Division of Developmental Disabilities comprised of three key elements: online clinician education in I/DD healthcare, the use of web-based health risk-informed data, and I/DD competent telemedicine supports. Strategies for preventing unnecessary emergency department visits, promoting identification and diagnosis of often-missed health conditions, and addressing health disparities for people with I/DD will be explored.
