A NETWORK OF PARENTS & CAREGIVERS & PROVIDERS

SUPPORTING YOUNG ADULTS AS THEY NAVIGATE THEIR COMMUNITY AND EMBARK ON THE JOURNEY OF A SELF-DETERMINED LIFE 

 

• Is there a young adult with a developmental or intellectual disability in your family?

• Will he or she be “aging-out” of the K-12 school system?

• Is he or she a high school graduate? Pursuing a post-secondary degree? Or Not??

• Does his or her future plans include OPWDD supports? Are you confused?
