The focus I have is upon ensuring that the focus of services continues to prioritize the desires and needs of persons with disabilities. Persons with disabilities, families, and circles of support continue to be the largest support system involved have tremendous knowledge and expertise that representatives who claim to represent authentic partnerships would be actively seeking out right now. Are we going to continue sending out questionnaires without any attempt to implement the Self-Determined Principles? What do we want? Choice, control, equal participation in decisions that we will live with and the welcomed opportunity to have persons with disabilities central to any proposed changes.
