transiton series 2020 Virtual Event

 

Registration is CLOSED for Transition Series 2020

 

“The Transition Series is such a useful event. I have attended twice, and I find that I always learn something new, about these complicated topics. It has really helped me both as a parent and as a professional who works with parents of students with developmental disabilities.”

– Janet R. – Alexandria, VA

 


The Need

As the parent of a child with a disability, until now you and the school system have shared the responsibility of how your child will spend the majority of his or her time during the day. Most likely your child lives with you, goes to school, and perhaps engages in activities sponsored by the school system or in which other peers participate.  However, once a child exits the school system, the young adult, the parents and family must take the lead in defining and navigating the future.  This means researching and advocating for services in areas such as employment, meaningful day activities, recreation, and housing.  It also means making arrangements for your child’s long-term financial security.  Making decisions for an adult child with a disability can be complicated and overwhelming.
