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?

Presenters:

  • Tara Howe, Transition Program Manager, HireAbility VT
  • Betsy Choquette, HireAbility Programs Manager, HireAbility VT
  • Sefakor Komabu-Pomeyie, Independent Living Coordinator, Vermont Center for Independent Living
  • Martha Frank, Family Support Consultant-Education, Vermont Family Network
