SAGE
In addition to our ongoing recreational and educational programs, we are also continuing our self-determination and advocacy group, “Self-Advocates for Greater Experiences (SAGE).” This is a very unique group begun in order to give self-advocates leadership training and experience. It is also a self-directed social group in which members plan and participate in activities that they choose. For more information contact erin@dsagsl.org, 314-961-2504.

Steps to Independence
This program is designed to teach adults ways to be independent.  The first session begins on February 15 and goes for 7 weeks.  The topic for the first session is ADVOCACY.  The DSAGSL has partnered with The Tuscher Institute to teach this session and students will be selected to go to Disability Rights Legislative Day in Jefferson City.
