Being disabled should not mean being disqualified from having access to every aspect of life.

Emma Thompson

The Lambton Kent Teen Transition Committee has developed this easy-to-use resource providing information for youth with disabilities about transitioning to adulthood.

The transition from childhood to adulthood is a life stage for families as well as individuals. As young people with disabilities move from their teen to adult years, they and their families experience many growing pains in common with all families at that stage of life. They also develop dreams and aspirations about what sort of work they want to do, where they want to live, and what they like doing for fun.

Certainly, no two people are alike and individual transitions vary. The challenge is not to discount this passage due to the individual's disability, but to embrace it and find ways to mentor youth with disabilities to grow into strong men and women. This website will equip you with information to make your transition as smooth as possible.
