Let’s learn about self-advocacy! What is self-advocacy? It means that you can stand up for yourself, ask questions, and talk about what you want and need.
Self-advocacy means believing in yourself and having the determination to meet your goals and be more independent. It takes time and practice to become a great self-advocate.
In this training, you can learn more about self-advocacy and practice your skills. The more you practice, the easier it will be when you’re an adult.
Don’t forget to ask your VR counselor, school counselor, family, or anyone you trust for support when you need it. You don’t have to do everything on your own.
