Advocacy

"Nothing about us without us."

This isn't just a slogan; it's the core of our advocacy program. Teaching people with disabilities how to advocate for themselves at all levels (in their families, schools, places of employment and within government) empowers them to effectively communicate their own interests, desires, needs and rights.
