Webinar: Transition Planning for Youth with Disabilities in the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Systems
December 5, 2013

On December 10, Juvenile Law Center Supervising Attorney Jennifer Pokempner will provide child welfare and juvenile justice professionals with information and strategies on how to improve transition planning for system-involved youth with disabilities and special needs. Youth with disabilities in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems face many additional barriers to a successful transition. These young adults are leaving systems that provided for all their needs, including a place to live, health care, education, and connections with family. To successfully transition from the child welfare and juvenile justice systems, young adults with disabilities and special health care needs and the professionals and advocates working with them must begin planning early and need to know what benefits and services are available in the adult system and how to access them. 

Transition Planning for Youth with Disabilities in the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Systems webinar will be held on December 10, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. There is no cost to participants for this webinar. Registration is available from the link.
