These two topics are combined within a single training session. Bring a lunch and join our roundtable discussion after the session for a chance to talk about real situations.
Participants will be introduced to 34-B MRSA 5601-5610, which describes the rights of Maine citizens with intellectual disabilities and/or autism. Any professionals supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities or autism spectrum disorders must help their consumers to understand these rights. Professionals are also obligated to see that the rights of their clients are honored.
Participants will also learn about Maine's Regulations Governing Emergency Interventions and Behavioral Treatment for People with Intellectual Disabilities and/or Autism. These regulations govern the use of emergency interventions and behavioral treatment in a manner consistent with maximizing the safety, well-being, independence, and inclusion of Maine citizens with intellectual disabilities or autism.
