Transition to Adulthood

You are already registered to this event

The completion of high school is the beginning of adult life. For students with disabilities, these choices may be more complex and may require transition planning. Planning the transition from school to adult life begins once a student reaches 16 years of age, or younger, if appropriate. Transition services are intended to prepare students to make the transition from the world of school to the world of adulthood. 

Attend this training as a parent, guardian, professional or interested community member
