For People With Disabilities: Community Living
Tonya has a very powerful story. In this video she talks about moving from Chicago, Illinois to Austin, Texas. She outlines the steps she took to make sure the move was successful and then discusses the things she did to become a part of her new community, such as acting and dancing. She also talks about a "New Self-Advocacy" that is about being comfortable with who you are.
Cole is a self-advocate who has a great definition and experience of self-determination. He talks about getting a job, being a home owner, and caring for his dog--all examples of living a self-determined life.
