The self-advocacy summits will be interactive meetings requiring a high degree of participation from the attending self-advocates who will act as the primary presenters. The meetings are intended to educate both the network of ADD grantees on the ADD Program's four goals and, as such, every participant will be required to communicate their expertise related to:

The current status of self-advocacy in their home State, which will include reporting on support structures, activities, accomplishments, and challenges;

The discerned steps needed to strengthen and enhance current efforts at the State level; and

Recommendations for action items intended to strengthen and enhance current self-advocacy efforts at the national level.

Summit participants are primarily individuals with developmental disabilities (as defined by the DD Act) who are experts with specialized knowledge in the self-advocacy movement in their States. Other participants will include ADD grantees with specific expertise related to supporting individuals with developmental disabilities to fully participate in systems change and advocacy efforts in their States.

DATES:
