Different people learn differently: that’s a fact. Knowing how YOU learn and what works best for you gives you a great starting place from which you can approach your education – inside or outside of school.

This workshop will give you a chance to explore your learning style, in a general way. There are many approaches to this topic out there, and different theories explain learning styles in different ways. The approach here is a general one, which we believe is a good place to start exploring how you learn.

Self-Advocacy for Youth

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 (LD)? Have you needed help and did not know how to ask for it? 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 is for you. Becoming an effective self-advocate is a key to success in all areas of life. An advocate is someone who sticks up for someone; lawyers in court advocate for the prosecution and defense. So when we talk here about being an effective self-advocate, we mean being a person who can explain to others how their LD affects them, and what they need in order to compensate for it.

This workshop is divided into four units, designed to be completed in order.

  • Unit 1: You and Your LD
  • Unit 2: How to Be an Effective Self-Advocate
  • Unit 4: Your Legal Rights in School
  • Unit 5: Summary
