Self-Advocacy Workshops

DSACO offers an annual Self-Advocacy Workshop Series! This series is open to individuals with Down syndrome or an intellectual disability ages 14 and older. The purpose of this series is to come alongside our participants and educate them on topics that will allow them to advocate for themselves in their daily lives.

This year’s workshop series will cover “#ADULTING” and the elements and steps each person must take to become a well-rounded, successful adult! The series will begin with a panel of self-advocates who help faciliate conversation about what obstacles they’ve had to problem solve to become successful and independent adults. We will then discuss, self-care, self-awareness, social etiquette, getting and keeping a job, finances and budgeting and MUCH MORE!
