The Autistic Self Advocacy Network is proud to have launched our new project, the Pacific Alliance on Disability Self-Advocacy (PADSA). The Pacific Alliance supports self advocacy groups in Oregon, Washington, California and Montana in increasing their ability to organize and advocate in their state and local communities.

 

As part of this project, PADSA is tasked with writing and publishing helpful, informative materials on disability self-advocacy. The group’s most recent work, titled Color Communication Badges, covers the beneficial use of color communication badges as an accommodation to support social interaction for people with a variety of disabilities and communication needs. Color communication badges were first developed by Autism Network International, and popularized by the Autistic community in Autistic spaces and conferences. To learn more, click here.

 

ASAN and PADSA are delighted to release this literature, as it will be beneficial and supportive to potential and established self-advocacy groups alike.
