Leadership & Self Advocacy

In order to make lasting change that improves the inclusion, independence and contributions of people with disabilities, leadership opportunities and ways to improve self-advocacy skills are needed. We strive to develop leaders with disabilities, through an array of training, technical assistance and mentoring programs. For more information, contact: Dr. Kathy Sheppard-Jones.
