Please register for our next Transition to Adulthood Learning Collaborative on Aug 10, 2022 12:00 PM CDT at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/432075508638383886. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.  

We look forward to welcoming Samhita Ilango, the National Alliance to Advance Adolescent Health/Got Transition® Health Research/Policy Associate, as our featured presenter. Samhita will present "Integrating Health Care Transition Supports in Special Education." She will provide background and evidence for health care transition supports and share the latest tools and resources that you can use to build health care transition skills for youth and young adults receiving special education services.

Please join us to find out ways to partner with school teams to incorporate “health”, an area of transition that youth, young adults, and families don’t see coming in advance, into transition planning beginning at age 14. Bring your questions and feel free to share this announcement with others who may be interested!
