INDEPENDENT CHOICES: A National Symposium on Consumer-Direction and Self-Determination for the Elderly and Persons with Disabilities. There's No Place Like Home: Supporting People in Communities in Kansas


The Kansas Division of Health Care Policy is committed to providing individuals with developmental disabilities the opportunity to plan person-centered supports, choose among a variety of services and supports, and enjoy full community participation. Consistent with these themes, tremendous changes are occurring related to how people with developmental disabilities receive supports in Kansas. These changes, referred to as the Self-Determination Option, promise to provide the supports that are truly needed and wanted, instead of simply offering what's available.
