What happens when children with special needs and disabilities become adults?
Partner: YAMA Foundation
We may all think about adulthood differently, but generally 18 is considered the age at which a child becomes an adult. For children with special needs and disabilities, adulthood may look rather different, but graduation from school is typically the threshold. Parents whose children are starting pre-school, or are in the midst of their primary or secondary school years, may consider adulthood a long way off. However, being aware of the issues that arise when a child legally becomes an adult, and being ready to plan ahead effectively, can be important.
Our children are each unique. With creativity, flexibility and knowledge, parents and caregivers hold the key to making things work for our loved ones. Join us for SNN Shares: Transitioning your child to adulthood to equip yourself with information and to broaden your view about options in your child’s future.
