New Transition Guide for Parents

Anthony Shriver, the Chairman and Founder of Best Buddies International says the transition to life after high school can be a life-altering transitional period for all family members affected. This new resource, Journey to Life after High Schooldeveloped by, is a step-by-step guide to help families through the process.  Within the guide, you will find a starting point that will help you begin the process of planning for your child’s transition. The guide is an 81 page PDF file.

The guide provides a framework to figure out:

  • how to get organized
  • where to seek aid
  • what options might be available to you

You may find encouragement from the real life stories (including their solutions) provided by families.
