Dr. Peter Gerhardt - Teens and Young Adults in Transition: What now? What's next? What Works?
Join us for a full day of ideas and inspiration to help plan as your child with autism or intellectual disability transitions to adulthood.
* As your child's time in the school system winds down, what are the critical skills he or she should be learning to promote success and independence as an adult?
* How can we support our children's growth and independence and ensure their safety as well?
* How can we support them as they continue to mature and learn beyond the construct of the educational system?
* What are the questions we should be asking ourselves, our children and the professionals who serve them?
