The Arc of Massachusetts
2021-2022 Transition Conference
Due to the pandemic, we will offer this year’s Transition Conference in a hybrid model. The conference will be based on the Frameworks from Charting the LifeCourse. Families of loved ones 13-26 are encouraged to attend. Note: all sessions will have interpreters available.
Holistic Transition Planning: Looking Across the Life Domains
In November 2021, we will offer 12 webinars utilizing the Zoom platform. These webinars will reflect the foundational elements for Transition based on the 6 domains:
- Meaningful Day and Employment
- Safety and Security
- Community Living
- Social and Spirituality
- Healthy Living
- Advocacy and Engagement.
Supporting the 3 Buckets of Need
In the Spring of 2022, we will hold 5 in person regional forums. We will be hosting area panels of young adults, families and professionals who will share their Transition experience and information. Attendees will learn about available services by visiting resource tables, connect with local families and individuals, and learn about the unique offerings in your local communities.
The 3 Buckets of Need as outlined by Charting the LifeCourse:
- Discovery and Navigation: having the information and tools you need to navigate life
- Connecting and Networking: making connections with peers and resources to help you navigate
- Goods and Services: the day-to-day tangible items you buy or use from public and private organizations in your community
Dates and locations are pending.
