Changes to Guardianship

Published Dec. 14, 2012

In 2011, legislation was passed that requires training for all lay (non-professional, or family) guardians. In addition, guardianships now have expiration dates as a way to ensure that guardians are filing the proper reports.

David Lord of Disability Rights Washington explains why these changes were made and what they entail, and one parent-guardian describes her experience of the new rules and what she recommends to other family guardians.
