Self-Advocacy Skills

Self-advocacy is the ability to take charge in how you communicate, ask for help and ensure you have equal opportunities through all aspects of university life.

Develop your self-advocacy skills through strength-based planning and effective communication in this 45-minute workshop. You will also gain ideas and tips on what ECU services are available to help you succeed.

This workshop will cover:

  • Communicating your needs in a clear, polite and effective manner
  • Ensuring that you have the same opportunities, rights and choices as everyone else
  • Explaining your feelings and thoughts, and asking for what you require
  • Taking responsibility for ensuring your needs are met
  • Working towards finding solutions for challenges or barriers
  • Being able to ask for help when you need it, being willing to ask questions and learn new skills
  • Making and implementing a plan

Develop your self-advocacy skills today!

There will be an additional 15 minutes at the end for Q&A if you require further advice.
