GUIDING THE JOURNEY: A Transition Training Program for Parents

In partnership with the West Virginia Department of Education, Guideposts to Graduation, Guiding the Journey, A Transition Training Program for Parents, and WV Parent Training and Information will begin its second year in August 2024. This year, we will invite parents and caregivers of children and youth with disabilities between the ages of nine and twenty-one to attend.

The transition from school to adulthood for youth with unique needs can be challenging. It can be stressful to know where to begin or what the priorities should be. The training sessions, which include using Lifecourse Tools, will help parents and caregivers navigate this process. We invite you to be part of this Transition Training Program for Parents.
