In celebration of the 100th episode of ADA Live!
What better way to celebrate our 100th episode and wrap-up this 2021 year than to talk about the importance of self-advocacy?
Of all the skills we can learn, the ability to advocate for ourselves could very well be the most important. Knowing who we are, what we need, and how to share that information with others is important for all of us. However it is critical for people with disabilities who are often denied choice in their lives or opportunities to make personal decisions. People with disabilities must have the opportunity to learn self-advocacy skills and become aware of how to ask for an accommodation in the workplace, the college or university classroom, or to make decisions about lifestyles, living arrangements, and everyday choices.
Join us for this episode of ADA Live! with our guests, Clarise Coleman and her son, Chase Coleman, who have championed the importance of self-advocacy through a non-profit they started named “Show Them How Smart You Are.”
