Understanding and articulating one’s strengths, interests, preferences and needs is the foundation for self-determination. I’m Determined! is a free website offering materials and resources to educators, parents and students of all ages. Videos are available featuring students discussing their own personal experiences. Other materials include downloadable templates on topics including tips on helping students prepare for their IEP meetings, graphic organizers to help students plan their days, and more. Educators in particular may find the modules useful. They highlight specific areas such as disability awareness and include links to other resources. For those who want comprehensive materials to use in the classroom, check out the I’m Determined Toolbox for Self-Determination.
