"Thank you so much for coming to our school to teach our studens about self-advocacy and employment. Your presentations were simply excellent and our students said your information was extremely helpful." - Jermaine McGregor, Transition Specialist, Cuba Independent Schools

"I have had the talented group from the Center for Self Advocacy present to our community referenced learning group at Jimmy Carter M.S. for over 3 years now.  The information provided and delivery of presentations to our group has had a huge impact on their ability to advocate for their rights and needs.  My students now run their own IEPs, and I hear them using the language taught during presentation as tools to advocate what they want.  In addition to the invaluable information provided, my students create lasting relationships with the presenters and look forward to their visits.  And finally, at the end of the module presentations we have selected for our students’ needs, the students are presented with a certificate of completion and they love that!  I can’t thank the Center for Self Advocacy enough for their continued support." - Trish Valdez, Special Education Teacher, Jimmy Carter Middle School
