In order for individuals to be in control of their own supports, they need to learn to speak up for themselves. This can happen through participation in the more formalized self advocacy movement or by every day encouragement to express what is important to them. Self Advocates learn that with the right to manage their supports comes the responsibility of follow-through. With the individual at the center of the planning process, we focus on self development, making choices, taking leadership and achieving dreams.
