Transition Advocacy for Young Adults
The transition to young adulthood is full of changes and questions as youth strive to establish their independence while still growing their skills. During this critical life stage, young adults with disabilities need to begin taking a more active role in shaping their lives while parents and caregivers often need guidance to help their loved one succeed.
Thankfully, The Arc's experienced transition advocate is here to help. Armed with information you can trust, our advocate will support both the young adult and their family members as they develop the skills and knowledge for success.
Transition advocacy is reserved for adults aged 18 to 29 who are no longer in school.
