Editorial Reviews

Review

Self-advocacy begins with honest self-appraisal and results in a solid appreciation of who you are and what you can accomplish. The path to becoming an effective self-advocate is almost always complicated by self-doubt, misinformation, low expectations and repeated frustrations and setbacks. There is no question that this guide can be a powerful tool for teens (and adult readers) in understanding the importance of self-advocacy, appreciating its potential benefits in school and other settings, and in preparing to take action. (Dr. Sheldon H. Horowitz, National Center for Learning Disabilities)

In this practical resource for teens, educators Tuttle and Silva teach the fundamental skills of self-advocacy. In the first three chapters, they explain what self-advocacy is, describe how it is done, and suggest ways of dealing effectively with the media. Each of seven subsequent chapters deals with self-advocacy in the context of a particular issue, such as personal rights, learning disabilities, and foster care. Sprinkled throughout the volume are quotes from teens who decided to speak out on issues affecting them. (Reference and Research Book News, November 2007)
