Self Determination Advocates Meeting
April 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
For about a year a group of self-advocates and often their families and facilitators have met each month to discuss self determination and their participation in this service category. This group identifies as the Self Determination Advocates. It is a committee focused directly on the interest of the participants in self-determination. At these meetings there is sharing of information, discussion of self-determination, person centered plans, progress on IPP’s and the experience of being in or transferring into self-determination. This group often shares successes and celebrates the experience of being in the program.
For the past year our focus has been on the sharing of technical information, but we also recognize the importance of building our advocate’s voice. This Self Determination Advocate Group is ready to move forward, more strongly identify its mission, and take part in shaping the direction of Self Determination in California. Although, the group is to strengthen the voices of our self-advocates, all are welcome including family members and facilitators who are active with a self-determination participant and are willing to support the person centered efforts of the person.
The Self Determination Advocates meet on the second Monday of every month from 3:00 to 4:30. Join others who are active in self-determination. This group is for adults 18 and above. Self-Advocates, Independent Facilitators, and SCDD CC staff will facilitate these meetings. If you have a questions email David Grady at email@example.com.
