It’s never to early to start planning for adulthood

From the article Web site debuts to help disabled make transition:

While in public school, students with disabilities have individual education plans designed by parents, their class- room teachers and professional teams that include a psychologist. The plan is renewed annually, and the final plan is supposed to include a transition plan.

But the shift after school still is a jolt to many….

… the reality is, you have to take the initiative,’ Lund said. ‘You have to understand it on your own. This [Web site] will be one more tool.’

I’ve emphasized what I think is the key point here: There are plenty of people and organizations out there that will help you plan the transition, but no one is going to do it for you.

It’s never too early.
