National policies, such as the Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) Settings Final Rule, create an imperative for organizations to change the way they provide services to people with developmental disabilities.  These new regulations are aimed at maximizing opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to access the benefits of their communities and receive services in the most integrated setting.  In order to accomplish this, service providers must support people to realize choice, individual rights, and autonomy.  This session will focus on current trends in disability services and strategies to develop and implement supports that help the person achieve the life they want and be included in their communities.
