Under Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), people with disabilities enjoy legal capacity—the capacity for rights and capacity to act—on an equal basis with others in all aspects of life. Supported Decision-Making (SDM) is a framework that supports this right and helps individuals with disabilities make choices about their own lives with support from a team of people. Supported Decision-Making is an alternative to guardianship.

In this episode, thought leaders Peter Blanck, Ph.D., J.D. and Jonathan Martinis, Esq., J.D. of the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) at Syracuse University, will discuss recent court cases where rights were restored and Supported Decision-Making teams were established.
