Description

The role of a self-advocate on a LEND team is evolving. Kaufman & Baer (2015) outline challenges and strategies to inclusion of self-advocates in LEND training. This poster highlights the success of a medium term self-advocate trainee whose strengths in policy and desire to learn led to successful inclusion. Participation in LEND included individual goals, specific programs, teaching/learning strategies, the trainee/mentor relationship, and policy initiatives.
