By Age

It is important to begin the transition planning process early to allow time for planning and accessing the support services needed in the future. Applications for services occur at specific ages and youth will begin to take on more responsibility for making decisions that affect their lives. Many of these age-related milestones are set out in laws and regulations. It will be up to you to seek out and apply for services as your child becomes an adult and transitions into long term care or adult support. You will be responsible for providing the required documentation to meet the specific eligibility criteria for each of these services and there may be waiting lists and service gaps.

This content was created by the Jeffco Transition Alliance Group (or TAG).  TAG was a collaboration among The Arc – Jefferson, Clear Creek & Gilpin Counties, the Developmental Disabilities Resource Center (DDRC) and Jeffco Public Schools. In partnership and with grant funding from DDRC, a series of family-focused trainings were delivered in past school years to equip students and their families in navigating a successful transition in their Life After High School. Due to family and community feedback the information was converted to self-guided learning.
