Supporting Transitions to Adulthood Resources

The disability and transitions to adulthood research team is developing resources to support young people with disabilities in preparing for life as adults. The early stages of the project have focused specifically on young people with cerebral palsy. The current stage of the project is now collaborating with other organisations and is related to young people with physical and sensory impairments. The project team has a range of stakeholders influencing and collaborating on the project including members of different disciplines, service providers and adults with disability experience.
