Transition is just a fancy way of saying “change is happening” and for those who are living with disabilities, and their families, these times can be filled with excitement but also lead to anxiety due to stressors around the unknown. You are not alone! Join us for a conversation with a parent and young adult with lived experience who have walked this journey. Learn about resources and tips as well as challenges met along the way. Sometimes the best resource is hearing from someone who has navigated transition and can offer a guiding light.
