MoCo Stand Up/Speak Up

After attending the S.T.I.R. (Steps Toward Independence and Responsibility) training, the Morgan County group met and decided their group would be MoCo Stand Up/Speak Up group.  They presented what they learned at the September 2011 Board Meeting and have perfected  their presentation to train other consumers in the S.T.I.R. methodology.  This group meets at the Kate Love Simpson Library monthly.  
Since 2011 a total of 7 individuals have attended STIR and become Ohio Leaders.  This group has been able to attend Ohio Leader meetings throughout the state and just recently began working to form a Regional group of self advocates who meet monthly.   This group has been active in contacting Superintendents throughout the region to see if they are interested in participating in the regional group.
