A challenging journey

There’s joy on the path to adulthood. But it ain’t always easy. Perseverence, grace, and a good sense of humor are needed. It can be a bumpy road.

  • Unfamiliar laws, systems and jargon lie ahead
  • Resources exist, but they’re scattered in different places and difficult to understand
  • Professionals mean well, but too often families leave meetings confused and overwhelmed

  • Resources gathered in one place
  • Jargon translated and processes explained
  • Information you need to help your child set priorities, make plans and take action
  • Encouragement, stress relief, and renewed perspective
