Key Things That Professionals Should Share
With Parents About Transition

Presented by:
Rosemary Alexander, Ph.D.,
Transition Coordinator at Texas Parent to Parent

Moderated by:
Kate Hurst



Description:

The goal of this training is to provide school staff with an overview of key transition issues, giving them enough information so that they can help their families sign up for programs, know what legal issues will come up at age 18, and facilitate planning. The following topics will be discussed:

  • funding sources and services: Social Security Insurance (SSI), Medicaid, Medicaid Waivers, the local authority for intellectual disabilities/mental health issues, and the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS)
  • transitioning from pediatric to adult medical services
  • guardianship and estate planning
  • planning tools
  • a creative, collaborative approach to the question, where will my child live, work and make friends?
