A Self Determination Parent

bbanksvegas4Self-determination seeks to give persons with developmental disabilities, their guardians and/or families, the opportunity to choose or create supports that will meet the preferred lifestyle of the individual.

Self-determination participants gain more control over how funds are expended, take on the responsibility of directing their services and become an active, contributing member in their community.

Self-determination is the only of it’s kind in the State of Kansas. We serve Shawnee County and the surrounding areas to allow those served and supported to determine their preferred lifestyle.

What can you gain from Self Determination?

  • Develop a plan for your preferred lifestyle
  • Explore creative ways to achieve the plan
  • Develop individual budget with the funding you have
  • Allow individuals and/or families to be decision makers concerning the supports
  • Opportunities to learn by making choices
  • Be the driving force in your plan

Self determination participants gain more control over how funds are expended, take on the responsibility of directing their services and become an active, contributing member in their community.
