Developmental Service Rights of People With Intellectual Disabilities

Intended Audience: Developmental Services Case Mangers, Crisis Team Members, & Agency Staff

Rights training introduces participants to 34-B MRSA 5601-5610, which describes the rights of Maine citizens with intellectual disabilities and/or autism. Direct support professionals and others supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities must be familiar with these rights, both to ensure they are honored and to support the person to know them. This training is combined in Region II, four times a year, with the Behavior Regulations training. You may find it helpful to review 34-B prior to the workshop at:
