“Our goal as parents is to raise great adults.  Research shows that independence and social skills are the two most important factors for positive outcomes for adults with special needs.  Join us to learn how to shift your parenting as your child transitions to adulthood”, Megan Cox

Many parents face challenges as their child becomes an adult.  From changes in the parent-child dynamic, to understanding the complex adult service system, to letting go a bit and allowing your child more independence this is can be a stressful time.  In this presentation we will cover:

  • Setting rules and expectations for adult children at home
  • Transitioning from school-based to adult services
  • Promoting independence and self-advocacy
  • Handling relationships and dating
