Adult Transition Resources

The post-secondary years can be very complex for students and their families. Wings Learning Center tries its best to work with families and provide some support as they connect with the adult service world.  Wings Learning Center will meet with the families and your local Regional Center at the request of the parent.  Wings Learning Center will support the student and family when visiting potential adult programs.  Wings Learning Center will help the transitional planning team lay out goals for a smooth transition to an adult program.  We can support but the family must reach out to and connect with the governing agencies and take that first complex step.

Here are a few resources Wings feels may help the family as they prepare to help support their son or daughter move from the educational system to the adult system.
