Planning and Giving a Presentation: A Guide for Self-Advocates

It can take a lot of time and hard work to put together a good meeting and a good presentation.  This toolkit shows self-advocates how to:

  • Work with a planning team, 
  • Plan and give a presentation, and 
  • Organize a meeting.

This toolkit has 75 pages of text, including sample agendas, flyers and worksheets.  Specifically, it teaches self-advocates ways to share information with their audience, how to be good presenters, and the ten steps to planning a presentation.

In addition, this toolkit will help self-advocates plan everything it takes to put on a meeting.  Self-advocates will figure out:

  • How much everything will cost,

Working Together for Change

For self-advocates to live the life they want, some things have to change. A person may want a new job, different services, a boyfriend or girlfriend, a new place to live, or something else. Sometimes people want to change things in their own personal life. Other times, people can work together as a team to change things for lots of people. The purpose of this toolkit is to help you and others make change around one issue that affects a lot of people. Using this toolkit, your group will:

  • Choose an issue to work on,
  • Identify partners and build partnerships,
  • Develop an action plan,
  • Put your plan to work, and
  • Evaluate your results.
