Transitions

 

The Issues

  • Asking current providers to identify on-going needs and make referrals to continue needed services if this provider’s services have an upper age limit – identify age limits and start referral process 1-2 years ahead of age limit
  • Management of Care – identifying needs and coordinating services/providers
  • Application and eligibility for adult services – SSI, Long Term Supports
  • Residential and daily supervision 
  • Adult Guardianship – why, when, how
  • Adult self-care and safety.  Supported decision-making
  • Adult school or training programs
  • Work
  • Social skills and Community participation and safety

HEALTHCARE TRANSITION –  Caution!  Following guidelines that intend to prepare youth to manage their own healthcare may NOT be appropriate or possible for many people with FASD.
