Knowing your advocates

It's easy to assume that people with intellectual disability are mostly unaware of advocacy efforts occurring on their behalf, but the growing self-advocacy movement, and the inclusion of people with intellectual disability in decisions made 'for'  and 'about' them is changing both the perception and the reality of that awareness.  Dave Hingsburger's blog post today, "Hand on Shoulder" illustrates the point very nicely.
