Parents (i.e., the primary caregivers for a child with a disability)
Parents, you play one of the most important roles in your child's transition to adulthood. You know your child best, and you are the constant in your child's life. Decisions about your child's future cannot be made without your input. Educators recognize the importance of parental involvement in the transition process, but educators also know that it can be difficult for a parent to know how to contribute to their child's transition planning. Thinking about your child being an adult can be scary. However, there are things you can do to help your child with this transition. It is good to remember that life comes to us one day at a time and our goal is to help you make each day count.
