Life After High School with Darcy Elks
Time | Heure
About | À propos
Typically graduation from High School is one of the most exciting times of life. However, for many young men and women with intellectual disabilities it can be a time of vulnerability to being put into an adult service world of day programs apart from typical peers and /or staying at home all day. Instead of life “opening up” it may become smaller and insular. Fortunately, this does not have to happen. Many young adults with disabilities and their families have a big and positive vision of an interesting life –with lots of exploration and opportunities to grow, meet new people, and go new places –including attending a typical post secondary education institution e.g., university, college, trade school, internships, work, etc.This webinar will share some key ideas for creating a positive future to assist students and their families to develop and move forward with a plan for a full life after high school.
