Self Advocacy for Transgender Students in Schools

A Talk by Oliver Bullington-McGuire (He/They) (Scaffolding Youth)

About this Talk

Participants will discuss and explore challenges of being transgender in schools. Case studies and examples will be used in interactive ways to introduce self advocacy skills to help navigate situations that may arise for transgender students. These skills will fall under 3 umbrellas: knowing your situation, preparing for self advocacy, and effective self advocacy. Some specific skills that will be introduced are identifying your needs, scripting for self advocacy, assertive communication, managing emotions during a self advocacy situation, and more.
