Missouri’s Alternatives to Guardianship Project has produced several tools that families, self-advocates and professionals can use to assess capacity and make decisions about the kinds of decision-making supports an individual may need. One tool is called the Stop Light Tool.  


The Charting the LifeCourse framework was created to help individuals and families of all abilities and all ages develop a vision for a good life, think about what they need to know and do, identify how to find or develop supports, and discover what it takes to live the lives they want to live. The framework is the keystone for supporting a community of learning that champions transformational change through knowledge exchange, capacity building, and collaborative engagement.


North Carolina’s Guardianship Capacity Questionnaire is designed to help all parties in a guardianship proceeding to gather information that will assist the Clerk of Court in determining what, if any rights, powers and privileges the respondent can retain under guardianship or limited guardianship.
