Guardianship Information

 

The National Council on Disability (NCD) has released a report exploring guardianship within the context of disability law and policy. The report examines the treatment of people with disabilities within the legal system that establishes guardianship and the use of alternatives to guardianship such as supported decision-making. NCD offers recommendations aimed at 'align(ing) the use of guardianship and decision-making alternatives with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) with particular focus on the integration mandate.The report is available by clicking here.
