Advocacy Tool Kit

Advocacy skills help people with autism and their families access the services and supports they need.

The Advocacy Tool Kit provides basic information about advocacy skills and ways to apply these skills in different situations.

It includes information about advocacy at school and in the community. It also covers the importance of teaching self-advocacy skills to people with autism.

The Advocacy Tool Kit is divided into the following sections:

  • The ABC's of Basic Advocacy and Negotiation Skills
  • Learning the Skills
  • School Advocacy
  • Autism Advocacy in the Community: A Parent Perspective
  • Community Advocacy
  • Learning the Language of Self-Advocacy
  • Resources

Our Autism Response Team (ART) is specially trained to connect people with autism, their families, and caretakers to information, tools, and resources.
