Everyone has a right to be heard. If you are a young person with special needs, this is your opportunity to use your own voice, rather than having someone represent your voice. Tell us your ideas on how to make the world more supportive of you and what you need to reach your full potential.
We Want To Hear From You!
Questions To Help You Get Started:
 • What would the world look like if all children and youth with special needs were supported to realize their full potential? • How is that different than the world as it is right now? • What would you like to tell Irwin Elman, the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth, about how to make the lives of children and youth with special needs living in Ontario better?
How To Submit:
You can write a letter, poem or story, make a video, take photos, create an art piece, sing a song – whatever works best for you and inspires you to express yourself!
We also invite people to help elevate the voice of a child or youth by assisting them to make a submission. There is also a process for parents, caregivers, guardians, siblings, service providers and professionals to express ideas. Deadline for submissions is May 31st 2015. We Can't Elevate Voices Alone!
