Call for SAPNA Presentation Scheduling

Self Advocates United as 1 (SAU1) has been chosen by the PA Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) to provide peer trainings for people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism through our Self Advocacy Power Network for All (SAPNA) project.  

SAPNA trainings for self advocates are interactive, fun, educational events led by self advocate coaches and facilitated by family member supporters.  Our primary audience must be people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism; allies and supporters are welcome to observe.  

SAPNA topics include Let’s Speak Up (self advocacy), Let’s Get to Work (competitive employment including protecting benefits), and Let’s Power Up (starting a self advocacy group).  SAPNA trainings help strengthen self advocacy skills, develop community participation, and build interest in competitive employment.  

SAPNA events are free and most effective when scheduled as a day-long event with one topic in the morning and another in the afternoon. Each training is about 2 hours long including time for general questions and answers with our experienced coaches and supporters.
