Youth in Transition
Disability Network provides transition services to individuals residing in nursing facilities who have barriers to transitioning back home or into new community-based housing. Persons who are served under nursing facility transition services also receive follow-along supports after moving from a nursing facility, so that they are connected to community-based resources and in-home supports. Youth with disabilities between the ages of 14 and 26 who are in the transition process from school to work or community-based living also receive transition services as they are preparing for postsecondary life. Person-centered-planning is incorporated into transition services so that people with disabilities are educated about options and make choices about their life based on their needs and desires.
