GMSA wrote a manual called “Getting Your Message Across” to be used to help local and state self-advocacy groups form meaningful partnerships with advocacy and provider organizations, such as domestic and sexual violence programs. The manual will help people with and without developmental disabilities to work side-by-side to improve services and support for people with developmental disabilities. This manual talks about what to do before, during, and after a meeting to make it more inclusive for people with disabilities. It also covers basic disability etiquette like common courtesies and respectful language.
