Limited Capacity seats available

Self-determination means finding and using your voice to lead your own life, no matter how you communicate. Becoming self-determined is essential for all transitioning youth, however it can be difficult to achieve if the adults involved remain in the same caretaker and decision-maker roles they've played since the children were younger. It's important that parents learn to adapt their roles and shift to being supporters of autonomy, empowerment and inclusion. Come to this session to hear a self-advocate's and two parents' personal stories and lessons learned on their transition journeys. Presenters will also share innovative ideas and strategies from their transition work with families and youth with disabilities at the parent training and information centers (PTIs) in Colorado and Arizona.
