I think it is important to find ways that work for you. People with disabilities need to self advocate, but all people need some help with some problems every now and then. Sometimes we need quiet places or just a little breathing break. It helps to have a calm atmosphere. Having disabilities is the most difficult thing sometimes but you need to control your problems with self advocating.
With my disabilities I don't need much to teach me the way things work. I have my strengths and weaknesses but I will work hard for it is a must. I have been in special education for a very long time, since kindergarten. I been learning to control my disabilities better. This is a great program at this school. WorkAbility has helped me a lot so I think self advocating is the most important thing there is for us.
