As part of the Department of Developmental Services' (DDS) commitment to provide information to the general public, individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, and professionals in the field, DDS produces the Fact Book on an annual basis. The Fact Book presents pertinent data over a 10-year period about the individuals served by DDS, including an overview of the service delivery system and trends in California. The Fact Book contains valuable information that is helpful in better understanding California’s developmental services system and the people served.
Transition to Adulthood: Young People with Special Needs Ages 16 to 20
What happens when a young person with a developmental disability finishes high school and faces the new tasks, opportunities, and challenges associated with becoming an adult? The changes can be daunting for all involved! There can be dramatic shifts in needs, available supports, and sources of funding. This Transition Workshop, intended for families with young people with disabilities ages 16 to 20, will help the teen and their family to navigate this process.
There will be two concurrent 3-hour sessions, one for parents and family members, and the other for the teens themselves. Both workshops will cover similar topics, including discussion and hands-on activities, but with a different focus for the parents and the teens.
