Self-advocacy for People with Learning Disabilities: A Guide for Adult Educators (2011)

This guide is based on the principle that a learning disability affects not just literacy and learning, but also a person’s self-esteem, family and work life.

The author begins with an explanation of learning disabilities and sets out a plan for self-advocacy that includes analyzing the problem; formulating a solution; and deciding on an action plan.

The author has included a list of self-advocacy publications specific to people with disabilities; a collection of tools and worksheets to help adults with learning disabilities identify and develop their personal strengths; and a series of tips for adult educators who want to help learners develop their self-advocacy skills.
