Please join Lin Perry Project Director Parent to Parent of NYS Family to Family Healthcare Information Center, as she presents the webinar Education for Empowerment: School and Teens in Healthcare Transition on Thursday, Apr. 26 from 6 to 7 p.m. As our youth with ID/DD or special healthcare needs transition from pediatric to adult health care systems, self-advocates and parents alike need to understand the importance of transitioning their healthcare effectively. While many people engage in transition planning for their education to adult systems, sadly healthcare, isn’t often included in those plans. And yet, good health is the most fundamental and foundational aspect of any persons success.

   

In this webinar, participants will learn what the research says, what issue to consider, the importance of transitioning healthcare and some effective means to begin a plan to transition for yourself or for your child. Our focus is being a good parent partner with your health professionals and using some tools to begin the conversations and plan for and insure success.

   

Please contact Shannon McCracken at 716-675-0239 with any questions.

   

Please be advised that only the first 100 participants who log on will be able to attend. Click here to register for the webinar.
