Self-Direction: So Promising, So Challenging

  • Self-direction enables you to select the services you want and to hire and supervise your own staff.  You can also manage your own budget.
  • Many families have chosen self-direction BUT have faced obstacles of many types. 
  • Kate Bishop is OPWDD’s self-direction guru.  She has offered to try to answer your questions and provide solutions.
