PLANNING FOR TOMORROW………..TODAY!
The future has a way of sneaking up on you when you are busy
with everyday living. When you have a child with special needs,
decisions about the future are often more complicated and you
need to be prepared sooner rather than later. The realities
of the adult service system - more demand for supports than
there is ability to provide - makes this essential.
Connections is a self-help manual on transition planning written
specifically for parents - to help you plan and make decisions
for the future that are right for you, your child and your family.
There is a lot of information in Connections
- how to develop a transition plan, suggestions for building
your child’s self-reliance skills, ways to access adult
services in the communities in Central West Region, timelines
for applying for programs and suggestions for you, the parents,
to connect with other parents to make this process more manageable.
This guide will help you plan for the time when your child is
no longer in school every day and seeking supports from the
adult service system.
