Self-determination and self-advocacy for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
Abstract: This is part 4 of 18 in a series of videos from the National Goals in Research, Policy, and Practice meeting. The meeting aimed to advance a research agenda that influences policy and practice for and with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Two individuals share their ideas on what self-advocacy and self-determination means to them and other individuals with I/DD. They talk about the self-advocacy movement, managed care and the medical system, peer-to-peer support, self-advocacy organizations, what they think needs to be done in the future to promote self-determination, and how important it is to teach these skills to individuals with a disability. Run time: 7 minutes 33 seconds.
