Life After High School - Online Self-Guided Training
High school is a critical time for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families as they begin planning for the teen's life beyond the education system. In the disability community, this life stage is referred to as transition. There is a lot of new information for transition-aged youth and their parents to take in, plans that need to be made, and sorting through all of this can often be overwhelming.
