  • What is self-advocacy?

       Self-advocacy is an individual"s ability to effectively communicate and assert one"s interests, needs, and rights.  It involves making good decisions about your life today and in the future, and taking responsibility for those decisions.  Developing self-knowledge is the first step to empowerment and determining the direction of your transition plan.  This will help enable you to take charge of your future, identify future goals and communicate those desires to teachers and other important people. 
         For parents, it is often difficult to allow their children to take on this role since we"ve always protected our children from birth.  This is an important "right of passage" for them as they prepare for their independence.  This program will also help you see the importance of this concept and provide strategies to allow you to step back.
