The Environmental Checklist can help identify gaps in self-advocate involvement in the life of an agency or disability organization. People can fill out the checklist as a group or alone. It can be used by staff with different levels of responsibility. We have found that self-advocates often have different views than agency directors.
The Environmental Checklist can be used to find out how self-advocates are involved and make a plan of improvement. The checklist looks at:
- Skills Training
- Day to Day Working Life
- Staffing Meetings and Service Plans
- Self-Advocates and Their Lives in the Community
- and An Agency that Supports Personal Power
