Self-Advocacy Program


The Self-Advocacy Program

The Self-Advocacy Program is intended for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who wish to take responsibility for their own lives and become trailblazers for change along with their peers. Each group has a leader, an individual with intellectual disabilities, who serves as their advocate.

The group is supported by a “facilitator” who moderates and focuses the group on optimal solutions to various issues and dilemmas with the aim of realizing goals. Regional groups have representatives in the national group and all of these groups work in collaboration with Israel Elwyn and Beit Issie Shapiro.

Examples of joint activities have included: 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.
