Youth Transitions

For youth between the ages of 16 and 25, we offer customized support to help them prepare for adult life. Activities include one-on-one counselling, group support and transitions workshops and an emphasis on self-management of health care and transitioning to adult health services.

The Youth Transitions program enables young people with disabilities or special health care needs to
  • Gain a greater understanding of their disabilities and/or special health care needs through interaction with other young adults and mentors who have disabilities and/or special health care needs
  • Build positive communication skills that will help them to describe and educate others about their disability, leading them to advocate for themselves at home, in school, in health care settings, and in the community
  • Develop strategies for taking more responsibility for activities of daily living, including managing their health care
  • Learn how to access resources in the community to help them prepare for the transition to adulthood
  • Explore healthy lifestyles and recreation options
  • Increase knowledge about educational, career and independent living options
