Self-Advocacy and Its Impacts for Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Ryan, Thomas G.; Griffiths, Sarah
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v55 n1 p31-53 Apr 2015
The following review of literature illuminates self-advocacy from a North American transformational learning perspective via meaningful impacts, which arise for adults with developmental disabilities, as well as various communities and their members. For adults with developmental disabilities, increased leadership capabilities and the evolution of new self-concepts continue to be powerful examples of the impact of self-advocacy. For communities, a more prominent voice and personable research within the academic community, increased awareness for some boards and committee members, and the acknowledgement and support of local or online community members are broad examples of the impacts self-advocacy has on us.
