It's My History Too! Activity Workbook 2: Supporting Self-Advocacy Passport (2013)

This workbook is part of a program designed to help people with developmental disabilities learn how to advocate for themselves, and to help their allies learn how to support their self-advocacy. The program was developed by Vecova Centre for Disability Services and Research (Vecova) in Calgary, Alberta.

The authors note that the role of the ally is a very important one. Allies may be support workers, relatives, friends, or other members of an individual’s support network.

Activities in the workbook focus on the meaning of self-advocacy; the role of the ally; how to support a person’s efforts without taking over; communication challenges; power and relationships; and supporting decision-making.

Formerly called the Vocational and Rehabilitation Research Institute (VRRI), Vecova helps both people with disabilities and the community at large. For more information, please click here: http://vecova.ca/.
