Module 4 Becoming a Self-Advocate


As discussed in Module 2, you have certain rights and responsibilities in regard to accommodations at the post-secondary educational institution of your choice. This means knowing how to effectively communicate what your needs are and being able to self-advocate in order to get those needs met. Having these types of conversations about yourself can be stressful. Being prepared and knowing yourself are essential skills to advocating for yourself and managing the stress that can come with self-advocacy.
