Our Day Together

  • In the morning, grab your coffee, juice, water and snacks while you hear who SAU1 is and why we are
    here today.

  • We will learn together about how You're Not Alone-Tackling Tough Times

  • Let's talk about the ways tough times may change
    how we think, feel, and act.

  • Hear from others and, if you choose, share your
    own ideas about getting through and past tough
    times.

  • You will end the morning with a plan YOU MAKE
    about the support you need to tackle tough times.

  • During your free lunch, enjoy a video with pictures
    of many of our own professional self advocate staff,
    called Power Coaches, showing My Life, My Way!

  • In the afternoon, let's talk All About Wellness. We
    will learn about different parts of wellness in
    people's lives. Hear from others and share your
    ideas about what you do, or would like to do, for
    wellness. End the meeting with your own plan
    about your wellness.

  • We will wrap up the day with an afternoon snack,
    time to talk more with other guests and the
    presenters, and lots of things you can choose to
    take with you for fun, to learn more, and to help you
    remember what we talked about together.

Who is Invited?

People with disabilities who want to
talk with people with real life
experience! We also would love
others to join us, especially people
who support people with disabilities
as friends, family, or paid supporters.
There is important information that
may help anyone, and the bonus is
clear information for people with
intellectual disabilities and/or autism
and the supports available to them
through the PA Office of
Developmental Programs.
