Join Donna Maxon for a clear, easy to understand comparison of the two types of Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) supports. Donna will share examples of the pros and cons of each to help enable families to make informed choices that will best support young people to reach their goals.

Donna is the parent of a non-speaking adult son who has autism and she has been the supervisor of his Self-Direction program since 2012, which is how she became known as “the mother of self direction.”
