At the next meeting on Wednesday May 2nd, we are very pleased to have Jia Li from the Services to Adults with Developmental Disabilities (STADD) team come and talk to us about her role as “navigator” for the Transition Process. STADD is a Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction initiative which provides transition support to youth age 16 to 24 with developmental disabilities. It has been in operation for almost 5 years in a lot of communities in BC, and Jia started last year in Vancouver in October 2017. The “Transition Process” is ongoing for most of our young adults, so the subject content will be relevant for those over 24 as well.
We will also cover “After Graduation” with Terry Schenkel from Developmental Disabilibities (DDA) giving information on community inclusion, employment and social programs at DDA.
Come and learn something new, share ideas and meet other parents/caregivers. .
