Transitioning to adulthood involves many challenges and possibilities for individuals with special needs. This workshop will provide options to think about and explore as you and your child begin to plan for adulthood. Learn more about resources in employment, housing, transportation/travel, higher education, social and recreational, and skill development. All individuals with special needs, regardless of the level of support needed, have options and support to help them plan for their vision and future. Although this is a transitions themed workshop, many of the topics and resources are appropriate for ages beyond.
Who should attend? Individuals, families, case managers, and community members who want to learn about transitions possibilities for individuals with special needs.
