Self Advocacy & Brain Injury image

Individuals feel they are the best resource to have a say. Self-advocacy is asserting your needs and taking action to meet those needs while being mindful of the rights of others.It is an opportunity for self-advocates to gain the knowledge they need to succeed and make informed decisions.

Historically, people living with Developmental Disabilities had no voice or opinion to make these decisions for themselves; they had no control over their financial situation, services, where to live, their hobbies, or careers.Self-advocacy takes place in the community, in the home, the workplace, at a school, or healthcare facility.

The Brain Injury Association offers an introductory training for survivors, caregivers, and professionals in the brain injury community. Feel free to share this information with others who might benefit from this training.
