The 2021 Transition Conference webinar series will demonstrate how the LifeCourse Frameworks and Tools can help you create seamless, successful transitions into the adult world for your loved ones.

National Family Caregivers Month – celebrated each November – is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country, a time to celebrate the contributions of caregivers and provide them with tools that they need. Across Massachusetts, more than 18,000 families are caring for a family member with an intellectual or developmental disability in the home. More than 9,000 of these family members are adults.
On July 30, Director of Government Affairs Maura Sullivan welcomed Russell Johnston, Senior Associate Commissioner of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), as her guest for a discussion of the latest DESE updates and special education news.
