Description: This presentation discusses research on the impact of guardianship on the rights of individuals with developmental disabilities. The research methodology is a semi-structured interview with a single participant, an adult who has recently been awarded guardianship of an individual with a developmental disability. In addition, a review of relevant public court documents will be conducted. Ethical and safety risks (the protection of private information) are addressed.
