This portal provides support for people of all ages in Kentucky with hearing loss and those around them by encouraging them to embrace self-advocacy as they go about their day-to-day activities.
Self-advocacy is the ability to speak-up for yourself and the things that are important to you. Self-advocacy means you are able to ask for what you need and want and tell people about your thoughts and feelings. Self-advocacy means you know your rights and responsibilities, you speak-up for your rights, and you are able to make choices and decisions that affect your life. The goal of self-advocacy is for YOU to decide what you want then develop and carry out a plan to help you get it. It does not mean you can’t get help if you need or want it, it just means that you are making the choices and you have to be responsible for the choices you make.
We hope you find this portal a helpful facility as you set out along your path of self-advocacy!
