Self-Advocacy Method (SAM) Group Workshops.

This summer your middle school, high school or college student can learn The Weaver Center's Self-Advocacy Method (SAM) in a small group setting.

During six 2-hour weekly SAM sessions, students will gain insight into their own learning style and executive function skills. They will understand their strengths and areas of challenge. They will identify and learn to effectively use compensatory strategies to deal with their difficulties. Communication and assertiveness skills needed to navigate school and work environments will be developed. Through role-playing, students will learn and implement practical self-advocacy skills and will gain knowledge about when and how to ask for accommodations.

Groups are taught by Dr. Robert A. (Buck) Weaver, Ph.D., Director of The Weaver Center and founder of the SAM programs. Sessions will be held on Thursdays, July 12 – August 16, 2012.

For more information or to register for a SAM Workshop, please call 508-358-1112, ext. 210
