Self-Advocacy Skills / Personal Advocacy

Why This Is Important

The most basic level of self-advocacy is an individual being able to advocate for themselves. Some people have had few choices in life, some have often had others decide for them. People who receive services can learn to speak up for themselves, to get better at it, and to learn to advocate in more and more life areas. This department has products that help people learn to advocate for themselves.
