Self-Determination in Action Project

Empowering Individuals to Become Advocates for Themselves & Others

As a person with a disability, do you know the individual rights and support services you are entitled to?

In partnership with the Productive Living Board, Easteresals Midwest is now offering courses to empower people with disabilities to be a personal advocate for themselves and others within the disability community. Both courses are offered to anyone with a disability, including families.

Courses Include: 

My Life, My Rights: This eight-week certification program explores what it means to have freedom of choice and empowerment for people with disabilities. Increasing self-awareness and promoting self-determination, students will learn how empowerment enriches their lives and impacts our world.

Self-Determination Leadership: In this six-week course, we'll take an in-depth look at how self-determination and advocacy empowered the Disability Rights Movement. Each participant will develop an understanding of what this empowerment looks like in their own life, and the impact this has in our society.

Each course may be coordinated in the following formats:
