Welcome to the 2023 APRIL CONFERENCE 

The "Six Selfies" in You!

Emily Petersen


Session Overview:

This is an interactive session that builds strong self-advocacy skills focused on strengths and needed supports in six key areas that we call "selfies". Learners will start to build their own description, using their six selfies to identify what they need in order to become a stronger advocate and meet their goals. When individuals have the opportunity to step back and reflect, this gives them what they need to maximize their potential.
