Teaching Members About Self-advocacy

Define: Self-Advocacy is an individual’s ability to effectively communicate, convey, negotiate, needs, and rights. It involves making informed decisions and taking responsibility for those decisions. (VanReusen et al., 1994)

Self-Advocacy is American. To be able 2 promote, what he or she wants, when he or she wants it. A carton of ice-cream is what I desire. First saying it, “I want some ice-cream”. Then he or she jumps in the car, or call Para-Transit and peruses his desire. In pursuing he or she is “Advocating” for the need he or she desires. He or she may not desire the added pounds acquired from the ice-cream. Depending on the flavor and/or brand.
