In The Driver's Seat
In the Driver’s Seat believes that Self-Directed Services offer people with developmental disabilities and their families the opportunity to map out their future and be in control of their own lives. We provide tools and resources to effectively navigate and utilize Self-Directed Services so that now YOU are In the Driver’s Seat.
While several of the features on the website are for people with I/DD and families who live in the Finger Lakes and Western NY regions, there are many resources and tools that can be used for people living anywhere across NYS, such as information found in the First Gear, the interactive Road Map and Acronyms & Glossary sections.
In the Driver’s Seat is working its way across the state to be able to provide Resources and Registries specific to regions. Please feel free to reach out to us if you would like additional information about our plans.
Meet Jeiri Flores
Jeiri (pronounced Jay-dee) Flores is skilled at challenging ableist assumptions held by our society about people with disabilities through her expertise and through her lived experience. Jeiri chose to utilize Self-Direction so that she would have the freedom to choose the services she needs to live a life that works best for her. Look for Jeiri and her pal Carrie Baker in the next few weeks as they interview each other about their thoughts about Self-Direction. Jeiri can be followed on Twitter @jeiri_flores.
