Self-Advocacy Workshops for Students with Disabilities: Planning for Self-Advocacy at McMaster University

GH 110
Registration Deadline: Feb 24, 2020 09:00 AM

Going into a meeting to self-advocate for your needs can be anxiety-inducing. This workshop, part of a series on self-advocacy skills, will help you learn the steps of building a plan so that you can go into the meeting feeling prepared and knowledgeable about what you are asking for. You will learn some basic background information about self-advocacy planning, participate in skill-building activities, and learn what some disabled students at McMaster have to say on the subject. The workshop has been designed and will be facilitated by a disabled student. We take an inclusive view of disability, and no attendee will be asked to disclose how they identify (e.g. those registered or not registered with Student Accessibility Services; those with physical, sensory, learning, developmental, mental health or other disabilities; those with mental health concerns; those identifying as Mad, Deaf, living with chronic illness, trauma, or addiction, etc.).

Workshop of is part of a project throught the MacPherson Insitute: "Politicizing Self-Advocacy: Improving Access to Learning Through Disabled Student Workshops".
