Unsure what to do before your son or daughter reaches age 22?
Let us help you with your child’s journey.
Transition is about planning for life. The transition your son or daughter will make from school to adult life in the community is a long journey beginning at age 14 through 22 years. Transitional services include post secondary education, vocational education, integrated (and supported) employment, continuing adult education, adult services, and independent living or community participation.
If you want one-on-one help from a transition expert, sign up for a problem solving session provided by SUPPORTbrokers of The Arc of Massachusetts. A broker will help you tackle problems and propose solutions by brainstorming ideas and giving you options, guidance, and resources geared toward your child’s needs, strengths, preferences, and interests.
One hour, individualized clinics will be provided at The Arc of Massachusetts in Waltham. Cost is $50/hour.
Anyone who has a son or daughter with an intellectual disability is welcome to register for a session today by calling or emailing Kerry Mahoney, Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-891-6270 ext. 109. Your appointment will be confirmed once the payment is received in The Arc office.
Before starting our transition work with The Arc for our son, we had no idea of the enormity of the transition task. We now have a plan. Our son has made so much progress because we know what we need to teach him and where he wants to go. And the most amazing part…we now know that he can get there and flourish as a successful, independent, happy adult. (Mother of 14 year old with I/DD)
