Accessible Information: Self-Advocacy Online

Self-Advocacy Online (SAO) is an educational and networking website for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. SAO translates important issues for persons with intellectual and related cognitive disabilities to understandable and entertaining interactive lessons and information while connecting individuals and groups to a larger group of learners. After this session, participants will be able to: – find and view lessons on important topics in self-advocacy in an engaging, interactive format. – gain access to important research that has been translated to be accessible and useful for self-advocates, and share this information with others. – view stories from self-advocates across the world and learn how to contribute their own stories. – connect with other self-advocacy group and work together on common goals.
