Self Advocacy is a foundational aspect of the Expanded Core Curriculum and is a vital component for success for students with Visual Impairments. “You Can Say That Again” answers the question, “How can I use technology to be a better advocate for myself?” This session explores and expands upon the traditional relationship between Self Advocacy and Assistive Technology for students with visual impairments. Using student profiles and mentors, this session covers comprehensive strategies, lessons, and techniques that educators and professionals are using to connect Self Advocacy and Assistive Technology. “You Can Say That Again” covers a wide range of methods from simplistic and low tech, to advanced topics with an emphasis on a strong digital knowledge, awareness, and presence. “You Can Say That Again” aims to give professionals a humorous, realistic, and empathic approach to examine these pivotal parts of the ECC.
