Penny L. Cantley, James E. Martin

Abstract


Many educators use the Me! Lessons to teach high school students with disabilities self-advocacy and self-awareness knowledge and skills. We conducted a mixed-methods study to examine the usefulness of the lessons, obtain student and parent perceptions of the lessons and to examine the lessons’ impact on student knowledge. This study indicates the usefulness of the Me! Lessons for teaching high school students with various disabilities needed self-awareness and self-advocacy knowledge. Qualitative findings suggest that students and parents value the content in the Me! Lessons and parents want students to learn about disability awareness and self-advocacy at school.
