Not Eligible for PDD? Now What? A Transition Resource Fair
There are a growing number of young individuals with disability that do not meet the eligibility criteria for Persons with Developmental Disability (PDD) supports. Foremost on mind of caregivers is the question “What do we do next?”. Transitioning into adulthood is not always limited to transitioning to adult services. It takes a vision with ideas, community resources and tools for community building, to co-develop a meaningful and inclusive life for the individual- the transition resource fair aims to facilitate just that.
