The Importance of Self-Advocacy in Daily Life

Self-advocacy is defined as the action of representing oneself or one’s views or interests.  It is learning how to speak up for yourself, making your own decisions about your own life, and finding out who will support you in your journey.  It is a difficult but vital skill to learn not only for individuals with developmental and cognitive disabilties but for everyone.  In today’s podcast Imagine‘s KGNU production class discusses what this skill means to them and why it is so important in their lives.
