Transition Planning for Adolescents with Special Health Care Needs: Information for Families and Teens

Manual 5


Originally published: 2000

Suggested audiences:

This booklet has been developed for families to help you prepare with your teen for his/her adulthood. Just as families have had to spend more than the average amount of time attending to their young child's care, the transition to adulthood will be best accomplished if families devote extra effort and energy to that transition. This booklet has been written to help and guide you-- to give you the information, ideas, tools and resources you need along the way.

There is information for parents and especially for teens. Review it together and individually and keep it handy for frequent use. We recommend that you work together starting when your child is 14 years old.
