This workshop is for families who have a relative with autism or a developmental disability who would like to find out more about the Representation Agreement.
What is a Representation Agreement and Why is it Important?
Once a child with a developmental disability becomes as adult at age 19, parents no longer have the legal authority to make decisions on their behalf. A Representation Agreement is a legal document for personal planning in British Columbia. It is a way to authorize your personal supporters to help you manage your affairs or make decisions on your behalf if you need assistance due to illness, injury or disability. This 2-hour workshop will introduce families to what the Representation Agreement is, where to find helpful resources on-line and how to help your adult relative complete an agreement. After the presentation there will be a light refreshments so families can network and discuss issues about transitioning to adulthood.
