This online workshop is self-pace and self-directed. The moderator is available through email or the bulletin boards to assist with any questions you may have.

Have you ever felt that someone didn’t understand you or that you were treated unjustly because of your learning disability? Have you needed help and did not know how to ask for it? Or asked for help a little too late to benefit you? Did you ever try to explain what your learning disability is and the person didn’t understand?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this workshop can help you develop the skills and strategies you need to be successful. Becoming an effective self-advocate means that you know how to explain to others what your learning disability is and are good at asking for what you need. The first step in learning how to be an effective self-advocate is being able to talk about your learning disability.
