Self-Advocacy and Self-Concept

As students with language based learning disabilities move through their school years, it is especially important to develop self-advocacy skills and guide students as they deepen their self-concept.  Self-advocacy empowers students to speak up for themselves and make decisions important for their lives. Self-concept, as defined by the American Psychological Association, is “one’s description and evaluation of oneself, including psychological and physical characteristics, qualities, skills, roles, and so forth” (APA.org).
