Stepping Into Adulthood

Is your family member about to graduate? Are you feeling lost and confused on next steps? You are not alone. Transition is difficult for all of us, but particularly difficult when you have a family member with an Intellectual or Developmental Disability and you don’t know how to access the right support.

At Life’s WORC, we know how challenging it can be to navigate a new system of services. Let us help you learn more about how to get the right support for your family member and guide them toward services that can help them integrate successfully as an adult member of the community.

We invite you to join us for a series of seminars this spring, custom designed to empower parents and caregivers and provide you with all the tools needed to make this transition.

Four-Part Seminar Series

  1. Person Centered Planning: Learn strategies to facilitate your child’s life plan.
  2. Adulthood Domains: Education about Adult Services, Education/Training, Employment Connections & Independent Living Connections.
  3. Community Based Skill Development: Discover transition activities that take place outside of the school setting: opening checking or savings accounts, money management, obtaining a driver’s license, self-advocacy skills etc.
  4. Adult Friendships: Learn strategies to help your child make and keep adult friends.
