Transition to Adulthood

Transition to Adulthood
  Success Stories 
Transition from school age to adult life is always in the back of a family’s mind. It is never too early to address planning for the future, including financial savings, post-secondary education plans and employment with many of the experiences that serve as building blocks to the future supported while children are still in school. The transition from high school can be one of the most complex times in the life of the individual and the family. Families want to draw upon all community and generic resources available to help their now adult child plan a life that is community-based, where he or she has a job, home, and relationships just like their peers without disabilities with access to the necessary supports needed to make this a reality.   *Wingspread Report, 2011
