Basics and Alternatives

When your student reaches their 18th birthday they will be considered an adult, even if they have a disability. This is an informational presentation to learn about the basics of guardianship and what other alternatives are available. You will learn the different types of guardianship and what other steps can be taken to support your young adult. We will be going through supporting healthcare, financial and other needs as your child transitions to adulthood. With this class, you can personalize the resources out there to best meet your loved one's needs.
Self Advocacy, Social Life, and Spirituality

The ability to self advocate and clearly state your needs, wants and desires is linked to more happiness, being safer and future success at school and work. Come learn how you and your loved one can effectively advocate. Having a social life is critical, yet as school ends and we transition to adulthood it can become a real challenge. We will give you ideas, tips and tricks to making and keeping friends and connecting with your community. We will also talk about spirituality and how to nurture it for a meaningful and well rounded life. All faiths and beliefs will be respected.
