Alex Kimmel, an award winning self-advocate, will lead you through a process of learning the necessary ingredients of equipping for self-determination and then applying the concepts to create a life of your choosing. Alex is known as the “The Self-Determinator.” Alex lives a full, busy life of family, work and inclusion in may community organizations with a goal to help others (self-advocates, families, professionals and the community at large) realize the positive impact that living a self-determined life can have. He works toward this goal further by conducting training on self-determination throughout Michigan and beyond. Alex will present his video (produced by the Pure Michigan team and commissioned by Wayne State University’s Developmental Disabilities Institute) and lead a discussion through PowerPoint, video, and audience interaction about philosophies and strategies showcased in this video. Be ready for laughter and an opportunity to update your thoughts on neurodiversity, acceptance and living a self-determined life.

1. Participants will exit with a minimum of 3 new strategies and/or resources to increase self-determination in their lives or in the lives of people they support.
2. Attendees will be provided the 11 core concepts of self-determination and how to introduce them into a meaningful day.
