Thoughts about Self-Advocacy

Written Material

Michael Kennedy explains the origins of the Self-Advocacy movement and stresses that Self-Advocacy is not just for those who have low support needs. He also stresses the importance of people with disabilities being given the opportunity of participating actively in decisions affecting their lives. The choices offered should be real choices, not controlled choices. In addition, he says that it is important to allow people involved in Self-Advocacy work to set their own priorities (in conjunction with their advisors) rather than be directed by outsiders.
