February 7, 2024 @ 7:30PM — 9:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Build a successful transition plan for your teen/Cree un plan de transición exitoso para su hijo adolescente
This special workshop will be presented by Dr. Andrew McCormick who works in the Down Syndrome Center of Western PA and directs the Healthy Transitions Program for the Center.
This workshop will be a "how to" on building your transition plan for your teen. We will focus on the use of age- appropriate checklists to assist us as a guide through the transition process. We will also emphasize a basic understanding of the difficult decisions of transition such as power of attorney vs guardianship, ABLE act and waivers. Finally, we will focus on the importance of developing independence through the use of readiness assessment and goal development. We hope to enable you to prepare and advocate for an individualized transition plan that wil create a healthy pathway to adulthood for your adolescent with Down syndrome
