Supported Life Institute 23rd Annual Statewide Self-Advocacy Conference
Advocating Inclusive and Dynamic Communities
A SUPPORTED LIFE is a life that is rich in qualities a person most desires, and one which shows how connected we all are to each other.
- A life which:
- grows from a person's own choices, desires and dreams;
- is not controlled by what kind of services are currently available;
- goes beyond just meeting a person's basic needs, to reaching a rich quality of life; includes all areas of a person's life;
- is always changing throughout a person's life; is the kind of life we all want and is not unique to people who happen to have disabilities.
