Transition to Adulthood

To make transitions into adult life successful, young adults with disabilities and special health needs must be prepared and knowledgeable. Individuals and families need information and supports to make effective decisions when facing issues such as adjusting to a new home environment, meeting new work and school challenges, selecting a doctor, and coordinating medical insurance.
