Getting started in a self-direction program can sometimes be daunting. With more choice and control comes more responsibilities and considerations. The new tasks associated with directing your own care shouldn’t be a barrier to enjoying the benefits of greater independence and flexibility. That’s where support brokers come in.
This session features a panel of support brokers and their self-directing clients to discuss the philosophy behind this role, what support brokers do and don’t do, and how other states and programs can deploy this essential component of self-direction with greater success.
