The Right to Make Choices: International Laws and Decision-Making by People with Disabilities (ASAN)

If you’re wondering about any of these questions, our new guide will help. This guide helps people with disabilities understand decision-making laws. You will learn about different kinds of support you can use to make choices. You will also learn about how people in different countries have changed their laws to help people with disabilities make our own choices. Freedom to make our own choices is a human right.

The toolkit comes in two forms, with each form tailored to a different audience:

  • Our Easy Read Edition. The Easy Read version is divided into five parts, each containing one subject discussed in the toolkit: Supported decision-making, guardianship, the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, the state of the law on guardianship and supported decision-making in multiple countries, and the glossary explaining the terms we use in the toolkit.
  • A Plain-Text or Families Version for either those with vision-related disabilities or those who would prefer a version without accompanying graphics.
