Downloadable Activities: Speak Up For Yourself
Activities to Encourage Students to Become a Self-Advocate
From standing up to a bully to speaking up when you're struggling in school to sharing concerns with a partner when you're an adult to advocating for what you need or want in a job, self-advocacy has many benefits. But it takes practice! Award-winning author and school counselor Bryan Smith has developed five activities to help build self-advocacy in children. Students will learn how to express what they are good at and how they struggle, explain why they feel a change is needed, and list examples of how being a self-advocate is helpful.
Five Downloadable Activities include:
- Get to Know Me
- Make a Change
- What Would a Self-Advocate Do?
- A Letter for Change
- It Helps in So Many Different Ways
Speak Up For Yourself is part of the Without Limits book series and is recommended for these activities.
Also available is the colorful, downloadable poster that can be displayed in classrooms, hallways, the cafeteria, and other common areas within your school.
