Just Enough: The Right Mix of Natural Supports, Technology, and Paid Resources for Enjoying a Home of One’s Own
1:30 pm – 2:45 pm – Thursday, September 13
Presenters: Keenan Wellar (LiveWorkPlay) with Maurice Voisin (South-East Grey Support Services)
This session is also available as a webcast! The new Just Enough Support video series will be available following the session at http://justenough.liveworkplay.tv
Barriers to people with intellectual disabilities enjoying a home of their own are best overcome by cooperative and deliberate efforts between family members and other natural supports, paid supports (including developmental services agencies), and use of physical and digital technologies.
This session will feature a mix of stories with (self) advocates, family members, and developmental services professionals from across the province. They will talk about how they overcame barriers and challenged themselves to have ‘just enough’ support.
The concept of ‘just enough support’ is about meeting needs without unnecessarily compromising privacy, independence, and control.
Presenters will share their stories in the first session, so the audience will learn the particulars of their solutions. In the panel discussion that follows, they will answer a series of prepared questions from the moderator, and then take questions from the audience. Keenan and Maurice will share the hosting of the sessions.
