Speak up – be assertive!

‘Say what you want and how you feel.’

It’s important to be confident and say what you want and how you feel. Feel free to say NO! Self-advocacy groups help people with learning disabilities get better at speaking up for themselves. They have meetings where you can learn new things and meet new people. There are self-advocacy groups in lots of places. Your teacher or social worker can help you find one near you. You may also want to think about joining the school council.
