Watch: Self-Advocacy in Transition Planning
May 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Watch the Self-Advocacy in Transition Planning recording here. (Coming soon)
In this workshop we talk about the importance of youth with disabilities developing self-advocacy skills as they transition into adulthood. What is the parent’s role in helping to foster their young person’s growth in independence and self-determination? How should youth integrate their disability into their identity? How can agencies and organizations help youth make a successful transition into achieving post-secondary goals in the areas of education, employment and independent living?
