Self-Advocacy Program


The Self-Advocacy Program

The Self-Advocacy Program is intended for people with intellectual developmental disabilities interested in taking responsibility for their own life and being trailblazers for change together with peer colleagues. Every group has a leader, a person with intellectual developmental disabilities, who serves as advocate.

The group is accompanied by a “facilitator” who mediates the group, channeling them towards the optimal approach to various issues and dilemmas with the aim of bringing group desires to fruition. Regional groups have representatives in the national group which works in collaboration with Israel Elwyn and Beit Issie Shapiro.

Examples of joint activity include: a meeting in the Knesset concerning the Guardianship and Supported Decision Making Law and a meeting with representatives of the Egged Transportation Company Ltd. regarding necessary adaptations to public buses.
