Transition GuideSecuring a Future for your Child with a Disability

A Guide to Adult Programs for Adults with Disabilities

Updated June 2018

 

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 becomes a legal adult at age 18, parents and family must take the lead in defining the future of the adult with a disability.  This means researching and advocating for services in areas such as work, recreation, and housing. It also means making arrangements for your child’s long-term financial security.
