With proper supports, Dylan lived at home and was able to be an active member of his local community and he wanted to keep it that way but he was having problems with his service provider. His provider encouraged Dylan’s mom to consider a residential placement for her son even though both Dylan and his mom wanted him to stay in his own home. The DRC-NH attorney helped them understand how to advocate to keep Dylan at home and Dylan was able to start directing his own services. As a direct result of this advocacy, Dylan now receives the supports he needs to continue to live at home, work part-time, and be part of his community.
With the help of DRC-NH, Dylan is happy. As he says, “Life is great. Life is good.”
