Very Effective Self-Advocacy

Much of the outrage and conversation that surrounded the release of the movie Tropic Thunder has died down. I expect that with the current release of the movie on DVD that conversations will once again surface.

I found the following video of a young woman affiliated with the ARC of Virginia. The ARC of Virginia advocates for the rights and full participation of all children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The young woman in the video is a self-advocate, and a darn fine one.

Absolutely excellent!
I must borrow it. And admit that I get some great material from your site. So thanks. And Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family.
