Making the Move - Transition from childrens to adults services for young people with learning disabilities

The transition between children and adult services for people with learning disabilities and their families can be daunting, traumatic and unsatisfactory. Familiar structures and support networks are replaced by new and less familiar processes with different thresholds of support. Without effective planning and involvement of all parties the period of transition can leave some isolated, disconnected from their life goals and their existing support systems. However, with a little thought, effective communication and committed work this picture can change. This conference looks at what works for transition, how it works and how good practice can be shared effectively. Drawing from examples from across sectors and around the country the presenter and workshop leaders will illustrate what has been achieved and how challenges and obstacles have been overcome.
