Decisions regarding transition can be very difficult to make and the planning requires time and a strong support team. To achieve a successful transition to adulthood, an individual’s transition plan must look at many elements of adult living including employment opportunities, vocational and post-secondary education, where to live and with whom, independent living skills, recreation, leisure activities, social relationships, self-advocacy, health and safety, financial benefits and income planning. Attorney Annette Hines will discuss in a transformative approach elements of transition planning. This is not an old-fashioned lecture (you’ve been to those already). This is your opportunity to ask the expert in a 100% question, answer, and discussion session. You will learn as much from each other as you will from Attorney Hines.
