Supporting youth with disabilities in becoming effective self-advocates is one of the current priorities of Parent Centers. What, exactly, does that mean, and what does it involve?

This webinar explores the resources available to help youth with disabilities build their self-advocacy skills. These include training materials that Parent Centers can use when working with youth and their families. The discussion of resources revolves around those listed in the priority page of the CPIR’s called Best Practices in Self-Advocacy Skill Building.
