    About the Roundtable Discussion
    Join us for breakfast and conversation to explore recent legal and policy developments that impact adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Topics include OPWDD & Recent Changes in Service Delivery, Criminal Justice, Sexuality & Relationships, Disability & Education, 17-A Guardianship and Supported Decision Making, and Right to Family. Participants will join experts in the field to engage in a facilitated conversation about recent changes and developments in these intersecting areas. As always, the roundtable will offer a collaborative environment to learn about the latest developments in the law, exchange ideas, establish new community partnerships, and explore solutions for change.

    Individuals with disabilities, legal advocates, family members, community organizations, and government entities are encouraged to attend.
