Self Advocacy:

  • 411 on Disability Disclosure – When you opened this workbook, you made an important decision! You made a decision to learn about disability disclosure and what it can mean for you. This workbook provides the expertise about disclosing a disability, and you provide the expertise about yourself. This workbook does not tell you what to do. Rather, it helps you make informed decisions about disclosing your disability, decisions that will affect your educational, employment, and social lives. In fact, making the personal decision to disclose your disability can lead to greater confidence in yourself and your choices. Disclosure is a very personal decision, a decision that takes thought and practice. Both young people with visible disabilities and those with hidden (not readily apparent to others) disabilities can benefit from using this workbook.
  • Student led IEP’s – For the past several years, teachers and parents have been encouraged to let high school students in special education take a more active role in their own IEP meetings. When a high school student participates in this way, he develops and hones his self-advocacy and self-determination skills – skills critical for assuming more control over the direction of his future.

General Information:

  • Disability Minnesota – The purpose of this website is to provide a single entry point to over 100 Minnesota state agency programs, products, and services that are devoted to the range of disability issues. We also provide access to laws, statutes, and regulations in pertinent disability-related areas.
  • PACER – PACER staff will help you find the resources or information you need. PACER helps a wide variety of families and professionals on local, state, and national levels every day. Most PACER services are provided free of charge to Minnesota families.
  • Roadmaps – The Anoka County CTIC recently updated booklets which outline, by type of disability, the tasks or “stopping points” that are crucial for young adults in gaining success and comfort in life. The tasks are identified according to specific age periods during the “transition” (from childhood/adolescence to adulthood) years: ages 14-16, 17-18, 19-21.
