Self-Advocacy

Self-Advocacy

 

Self-advocacy is referred to as the ability to articulate one’s needs and make informed decisions about the supports necessary to meet those needs.

 

Anaheim Adult Day Care staff help clients:

  • Express preferences, interests, wants, and needs
  • Evaluate the outcomes of previous decisions to make future decisions accordingly
  • Increase communication skills such as negotiation, compromise, and persuasion
  • Accept responsibility for actions and decisions
  • Increase their self-confidence

 

All persons regardless of disability must learn through experiences to explore, take risks, learn from consequences, become self-motivated, develop positive self-esteem and gain control over their lives.
