Event Details

Description: Join Sam in looking at the transition process for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. While age 21 seems far away, it comes much faster than people anticipate and often leaves families on a cliff edge of no support post-secondary. Learn about barriers and best practices within the transition process and determine ways to cater to your individual needs.

Learning objectives:

  • Parents will be able to identify barriers to transition as well as ways to overcome them.
  • Attendees will learn best practices within the transition process.
  • At the end of the session, families will walk away with at least three to five action items relating to the transition process for themself or their loved ones.
