Workshop: Advocacy 101

Effective advocacy is a critical component of the protection and advancement of inclusive education and civil rights for students with disabilities. But, what does effective advocacy mean and what does it look like? In this informative workshop, the benefits of parent/professional partnerships and positive, assertive advocacy strategies will be shared. Participants will explore six specific ways to boost effective advocacy efforts that include: maintaining a clear understanding of your student’s disability, gaining knowledge of the key players, understanding your rights and responsibilities, becoming well organized, utilizing clear and effective communication skills, and being able to effectively resolve disagreements! Advocacy strategies related to ensuring effective implementation of the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will also be included. If you want to learn how you can make a difference in the lives of students with disabilities, this workshop is for you!
