Tips for Teens: Use Your IEP Meetings to Learn How to Advocate for Yourself

This consumer education sheet provided by the PACER Center provides useful tips for teens in developing self-advocacy skills. It provides information on how to begin to express needs and wants by participating in their Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings. At these meetings, teens can learn ways to talk about their disability to others, set goals, build teamwork skills, ask for accommodations and practice other self-advocacy skills.
