Words of Affirmation

The 2012 WATG Teen Conference focused on self-advocacy.  We're gratified that so many students (and their adult advocates) felt it was a day well-spent.  My favorite kid quote?  

 "I will go to school on Monday as a new person . . . I think."



Someone asked me how in the world he could possibly start from scratch and create an entire self-advocacy program when his district has nothing like it in place. 

We don't have to re-invent the wheel.  A good self-advocacy program simply pulls together the best of the many diverse resources we have on hand and always wanted to use with our students.
