Dr. Olivia Raynor, Director of the Tarjan Center will be a speaker on this webinar which will provide an overview of a paper written by AUCD members who seek to start a conversation about improving interdisciplinary and interagency collaboration in supporting self-determined transition of youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities to adulthood and to community life. As youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities leave school, they face several transitions including school to work or postsecondary education, family home to community living, and child oriented health care to adult care. Youth should be able to expect self-determined transitions with coordinated support from family, community, professionals, and agencies, but they and their families often experience very little choice, control, or collaboration from the myriad of systems to which they look for support and services to transition.
