SAIL Manual For Self-Advocacy (UPDATED 2014)

A workbook about self-advocacy after acquired brain injury (ABI). Self-advocacy involves:  knowing what your needs are, knowing what resources are out there to help you meet your needs, and having the beliefs and skills to get your needs met. Sometimes the injured person may advocate for himself; sometimes the person and a family member may advocate together as a team; and sometimes a family member is an advocate for the injured person. This workbook was developed for both individuals with brain injury and other people who advocate for and with them. When we use the term “self advocate” we are referring to both types of advocates.
