A Statement about the We Have Choices Video From SANYS Board

November 2010

The Board of the Self-Advocacy Association of New York State, Inc. (SANYS) is very proud of our We have Choices video. We made this video in partnership with OPWDD and many other people and organizations, including DDPC, the Developmental Disabilities Planning Council, which, along with OPWDD supported our efforts at developing some of the original ideas about choice that we call Wheel Power. There is a short section on the DVD extras that talks about wheel power and choices.

We created We Have Choices because we wanted to show people with developmental disabilities living their lives as full and contributing citizens of their communities.  Here is what we wrote on the back of the DVD:

We Have Choices is a documentary exploring the full lives people with developmental disabilities experience when they are supported to live in a place they have chosen to call home, in the community of their choice, with supports they, their family, and their friends have helped create. This is a film about history, self-advocacy, family, community, relationships, love, respect, challenges and opportunities.
