Self-determination skills, such as self-advocacy and self-awareness, have the potential to increase successful secondary and postsecondary outcomes for students with disabilities.
Welcome to the ME! Lessons. All of the lessons and supplemental information needed to teach the lessons can be found on this page. Prior to teaching the lessons, please download and read
