Self-advocacy plays a vital role in nearly every aspect of life for individuals on the spectrum, in school, at home, in the community, and at work. The more self-awareness people on the spectrum possess, the more they can be players in advocating for their own comfort, happiness, and well-being. This cutting-edge curriculum helps professionals and family members provide children and adults with ASD with safe forums for self-discovery, structured learning activities, and a cumulative understanding of the many facets of self-advocacy. The 12 units included in the Teacher Edition and Student Workbook provide a comprehensive curriculum with detailed lesson plans, worksheets and activities, culminating in the creation of a personal self-advocacy portfolio, a living document that can be adjusted over the life span.
Audience: Adolescents/Teens, Parent, Professional
