Supporting Youth with Disabilities in the Transition to Adult Life

Adopting the roles of adults, such as worker, post-secondary student, or family member, can be difficult and intimidating for any young person. When the young person has a disability, the challenges are multiplied. In this workshop, the roles of adult life will be explored, and why it may be hard for a young person with a disability to fill those roles. Topics to be discussed include transition planning, roles for various support people, instruction in community living, preparation for higher education, and support to enter the workforce.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
