Self-Determination for Deaf Youth

This image looks like taken in a classroom with a young girl standing with an open notebook and a pen in her hands. She is leaning on the desk and facing the classroom. Behind her is a black where it mentions the timetable for all the days of the week with timings.
Being self-determined means acting or causing things to happen as you set and work toward goals in your life. People who have stronger self-determination are able to make their own choices, manage their time, solve problems, advocate for themselves, set goals, and make plans to reach these goals. Young people with disabilities must also be aware of their rights, responsibilities, and protections under the law. This resource will support the development of basic knowledge, skills, and abilities that are essential to self-determination.
