Supported decision making enables people with cognitive disabilities to participate in
making decisions about their own life. It empowers a person to participate and gain
life experience in making choices and exercising control based on their will and
preferences. In the context of implementing the new Service Model Framework
(SMF), the TAC engaged the La Trobe Living with Disability Research Centre to build
the capability of Independence claims employees to apply the La Trobe Support for
Decision Making (SDM) Framework in their interactions with clients.
