Transcript of 1A Unit 1-Activity 2

For example, Mira has identified her strengths
in the areas of math, computers, and art. She
has also identified her area of need as explaining her disability.
Now, keeping these strengths in mind (for example, math, computers, and art) answer
the following questions:

Now talk to three people to choose three strengths.
Example
Look at your journal entry...now let's set some short-term goals.

Turn Needs into Strengths
to Question #1 (“Do you
know what you do well (what your strengths
are) in school?”), Reflect on
your areas of strengths and get input about your strengths from others who are familiar
with you, such as your friends, parents, coaches, teachers, and employers.
Make a list of the strengths they mention and select three
of these strengths to develop goals around.
See example on next slide.
If you answered NO...
Write three strengths in your journal.

Now keeping these strengths in mind (for example math, computers and art) answer the following questions in your journal.


Example: Mira has difficulty describing her disability in writing or words (area of need), but she can use her artistic abilities to explain her
disability through images. This would also show people that while she has a disability in some areas, she still excels in other areas such as art.

Now you answer in your journal.
Question 1: How can I use my strengths to improve my areas of need?
Answer #2: Mira can join an extracurricular activity, such as the school newspaper or
volunteer to maintain the school website, or design sets for school plays.

Now answer in your journal.
Question #2: What short-term goals can I develop to highlight these strengths?

#2 - Unit 1-Activity 2
411 Disability Disclosure

Journal Entry
Question #3: How can I use these strengths
to reach my employment goals?
Question #4: How can I use these strengths
to reach my social goals?
Question #5: What short-term goals can
I develop to highlight these strengths?
Answer #3: She can research which careers
need people with strong skills in math,
computers, and art. She may look into the
graphic arts career field that interests her
and highlights her skills. Maybe she can
find a part-time job or internship in an
art store or information technology firm.

Now answer in your journal.
Answer #4: Mira would like to broaden her circle of friends, but she finds it difficult to meet new people. She will try to meet a few new people in her extracurricular activities and at her part-time job who have similar interests. She could also invite someone to an art exhibit.

Now write in your journal.
Answer #5: Mira wants to improve her grades
in English class this semester. She could improve her grade by talking to her teacher
about using her artistic or technical skills to
supplement her writing assignments or using
these skills to aid in writing her final
assignment.

Now you write in your journal.
Set up your journal page to
look like the following...
List your strengths noted on the questionnaire and any other strength you have identified. Talk with others and list the strengths that they mention.
Select three of these strengths to focus on in this activity.
1.
2.
3.
Focusing on these three strengths, answer the following questions:
Question 1: How can I use my strengths to improve my areas of need?

Question 2: What short-term goals can I develop to highlight these strengths?

Question 3: How can I use these strengths to reach my employment goals?

Question 4: How can I use these strengths to reach my social goals?

Question 5: How can I use these strengths to reach my academic and educational goals?
This curriculum was developed by the US Department of Labor and is presented by
Kim Cubitt from Kim Cubitt Consulting. As I narrate each slide, at the end I may add information that is not seen on the slide to enhance your learning. Let’s begin!
Complete the checklist below in your Journal and then evaluate yourself.

ACTIVITY: JUST WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR DISABILITY?

Yes Sometimes No

1. Do you know what you do well in school?
2. Do you know what you do well outside of school?
3. Can you easily explain your skills and strengths to other people?
4. Do you know how you learn best?
5. Do you inform your teacher how you learn best?
6. Do you inform your employer how you learn best?
7. Do you ask for help when you need it?
8. Do you take responsibility for your own behavior?
9. Do you feel proud of yourself?
10.Do you set long-term and short-term goals for yourself?

Yes Sometimes No
11.Do you create lists for yourself to help you achieve your goals?
12.Are you present at your own IEP or 504 meetings?
13.Do you participate in your own IEP or 504 meetings?
14.Do you disclose your disability to others?
15.Do you like the reaction you get when you inform someone about your disability?
16.Do you practice disclosing your disability to others?
17.Do you describe your disability differently depending on the setting or the people?
18.Are there times you choose not to tell someone about your disability?
19.Do you know what “reasonable accommodation” means?
20.Do you know what accommodations you need in school in order to be successful?
21.Do you know what accommodations you need on the job in order to be successful?
22.Do you practice asking for the accommodations you need in school?
23.Do you practice asking for the accommodations you need on the job?
If you answered "YES" to many of the questions, you should be very proud of yourself! You definitely have a good sense of yourself and your disability. This means you’re on the road to being a very self-determined individual! Of course you realize that there will always be room for improvement. Reflect on the questions you answered with a "NO", and create some short-term goals designed to strengthen your areas of limitations.

If you answered "SOMETIMES" to many of the questions, you possess some very good skills in understanding yourself and your disability, but you have some specific areas that need to be developed. Once you have identified your strengths (the questions you answered with a "YES"), list the other areas that need work (the questions you answered with a "NO") and prioritize them. Decide which areas of need are most important to focus on right now, and create some short-term goals to begin to strengthen your weaker spots.

If you answered "NO" to many of the questions, you are at the beginning stage of understanding yourself and your disability. Take the next step and seek out others whom you trust and who know you well; ask them to help you sort out your areas of strengths and needs (you probably have more strengths than you realize). Share the results of the questionnaire with these individuals and ask them for assistance in developing some short-term goals for the purpose of gaining a better understanding of yourself.
Checklist cont.
