Transition Planning

Youth Transition Toolkit: A Guide for Youth with Disabilities Transitioning to Adulthood 

All of the resources that you need to make the right decisions as you transition into adulthood are right here in this guide, including "Tips for Parents" sections.  These sections will give you the opportunity to work together with your parents as you transition into independence. You can share this website with them or even print out the "Tips for Parents" sections to help start a conversation about how you can begin doing things on your own.   

Transition Planning Guides are excellent resources for planning for post-school needs in Home/Living and Recreation and Leisure.
