Families with disabled children often face additional challenges that may delay or limit the young person’s move towards independence. For any young person, with or without a disability, the process of growing up involves the gradual taking on of more and more responsibility for themselves.

Although this can be an exciting time, it is a challenge for any teenager, but for disabled young people and their families the move can seem particularly daunting.

Making sure that the changes involved in the transition process run smoothly is important for all concerned. Being a teenager should be a time of opportunity for young people and should be a positive experience as they take steps towards adulthood.
