Teaching Self-Advocacy: Tier 2 & 3 Interventions for Increasing Student Independence - Hartford, CT
Participants will learn research-based self-advocacy skills and how to implement, teach, and assess self- advocacy skill strategies.
These strategies help students prepare for and participate in education or transition planning conferences. Students learn to determine and list their perceived strengths, areas in which they need to improve or learn, education and transition goals, needed accommodations, and more. They then use steps of the strategy to share their lists during conferences, listen and respond to others, ask questions and communicate their goals.
