Transition to Adulthood Learning Collaborative

The Transition to Adulthood Learning Collaborative (TALC) meets quarterly via conference call to share knowledge, implementation strategies, and best practices. Providers, youth and young adults, parents, caregivers, as well as representatives from health care plans, hospital and university systems, and local community organizations are invited to participate. Membership is open to the general public. To join or learn more about the learning collaborative, please email CSHCNSDG@dshs.texas.gov

Mission

To promote a collaborative approach to the provision of transition services for youth in Texas with disabilities and special health care needs and their families.

Vision

Successful transition outcomes for all youth in Texas with disabilities and special health care needs and their families.

Strategic Plan

Beginning in 2013, the Transition to Adulthood Learning Collaborative members, named the Texas Title V Transition Workgroup at the time, gathered to create the workgroup’s first strategic plan. An exploration of the workgroup’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges informed the selection of strategic priorities. Next, stakeholder and family member recommendations assisted in the creation of specific goals, strategies, and objectives. The resulting Five Year Strategic Plan is a product of the workgroup’s efforts, and is intended to support members as they strive to further the mission and vision of the TALC.
