5 Steps to Self-Advocacy in the Community [Life Skills]

Self-advocacy is the ability to speak up for yourself or on the behalf of someone else or for a cause. It is also the ability to know your rights and responsibilities and to reach out to others when you need help or support. When you self-advocate you have the ability to be assertive as well as negotiate for one’s self, others, or for a cause.

Teaching our students to self-advocate during community outings is an important skill to get their needs met.
