Navigating the Transition to Adulthood

Parenting Your Child with Autism Series Presents:
Title: Navigating the Transition to Adulthood
About the Talk: The transition of a student out of high school into the adult world can be a stressful time for many families. Families of students with ASD must navigate several forms of transition including: shifting from being a high school student to post-secondary student or employee; beginning new daily family routines; and moving out of the public school system into adult services or losing services and formal supports. Join us for a conversation about navigating the transition to adulthood. What we have learned from working with families and schools will be shared. Bring your questions and concerns for an interactive discussion.
