Teachers know how to advocate for their students, but do students with disabilities have self-advocacy skills or know the importance of self-advocacy?

These self-advocacy books and activities for students with IEPs will be the perfect resource for elementary, middle school, and high school students to learn and practice self-advocacy skills.

Students typically begin learning about their IEPs at transition age, which is age 16 per the IDEA (and age 14 in some states). But it is never too early to teach students about themselves, their IEPs, and how to self advocate for their wants and needs. This bundle is intended to help you do just that - empower your students.

These books and activities can be used at home or at school.

Each book title comes with:

• Editable letter home to parents

• Adapted Book with comprehension test (digital + printable)

• IEP Reader - same content as Level 2 Adapted Book (digital + printable)

• 1 Extended Activity

Each adapted book and reader uses real pictures, enabling the books to be used with any age of student.
