Skye has built a big team of supporters to help with all kinds of decisions. In this short film, she talks about the decisions she makes every day to eat good foods, get enough exercise and accomplish the goals she has set for her life.
This is one of three videos I have done in August and September for The Arc of Northern Virginia. I’ve been working with Lucy Beadnell of The Arc of Northern Virginia on a video series that highlights the impact of Supported Decision Making, an approach to making choices that guides and supports the process for people with disabilities. Lucy secured a grant to teach the principles of Supported Decision Making from the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities. The source of the grant funding was the Administration for Community Living under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
