This presentation focuses on exploring ways to be successful for young adults who are on the non-traditioinal path following high school graduation (i.e. young adults with severe/multiple disabilities, deaf-blindness). Using a person-centered approach toward futures planning, participants will discover purposeful, meaningful and enjoyable activities that build on the strengths, skills and talents of their young adult children. A panel of representatives from state agencies will discuss services for young adults. Space is limited to 20 participants.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify the components of person-center planning.
- Identify local sources of support for their child’s future.
- Develop action steps toward building a personal futures plan for their child.
