September Blog: Me or a loved one is transitioning out of school...now what?
La Crosse, September 30th - "Where will I live? What will I do for a job/Will I have a job? Can I go onto college? What will I do for fun?"
These are some of the common questions young people with disabilities (or their parents or guardians) have as they are beginning to transition out of high school and into adulthood.
We want to encourage you to start thinking about these questions as you are gearing up for transitioning. We know that this can be a scary time of changes and uncertainty, but we are here to help and give advice on your future life path.
Here is how you get started...
