Generally speaking, transition is defined as the movement from one set of activities to another, but for the families of adolescents and young adults with special needs, it has a more specific meaning. In this context, “transition” refers to the complex process of moving from one life stage to another: from adolescence to adulthood.
Kelley Challen will provide a brief overview of transition terminology, highlight best practices for transition planning and assessment, discuss the genesis of NESCA’s innovative transition model, and provides practical advice for families and professionals navigating the process.
