If you’re a student with a disability making the transition from high school to college, the parent or advocate of such a student, or a student with a disability who is already attending Boise State, take a look at the Self-Advocacy Handbook for Students with Disabilities. Developed by the Department of Occupational Therapy at Colorado State University, the handbook begins with a discussion of the transition from high school to college, followed by three sections that correspond to the definition of self advocacy: “Know yourself,” “Know what you need and want,” and “Know how to get what you need and want.” Each section includes a worksheet, checklist, suggested activities, and links to additional resources.
