Project Details

The Advocates as Leaders, Self Advocacy Speakers Bureau is a group of trained speakers with developmental and intellectual disabilities that focus on providing information and experiences related to disability issues, presented through their eyes. Each presentation is designed and presented by self advocates who have expertise in a variety of subjects that impact the lives of people with disabilities. They use their skills to dispel the myths about what people with disabilities truly believe, cherish and value. Their message is one of hope, overcoming life's challenges, and the opportunities now available to people with disabilities and their families.
