A Review of the Literature on Self Advocacy Components in Transition Programs for Students with Learning Disabilities.
Merchant, Deborah J.; Gajar, Anna
Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, v8 n3 p223-31 Jun 1997
This review explored the literature on programs for students with learning disabilities incorporating self-advocacy components into secondary-to-post-secondary transition programs. An evaluation of self-advocacy components is presented to determine to what extent such self-advocacy skills as knowing one's rights, effective communication skills, and understanding one's own disability were incorporated.
