Increasing Self-Advocacy in Health Care Transition
- an Ask the Experts webinar hosted by TASN providers KSSC & Families Together
Many Kansas educators, service providers, and families are looking for ways to improve the quality of life for youth with disabilities.
Youth experience many challenges in their life when transitioning to adulthood. Conquering health care will be just one challenge. However, the added dynamic of having a disability may make their transition more difficult, if he or she is not adequately prepared. Join the expert, Tami Schwindt from Families Together on March 28 at 1 p.m. to hear about strategies that help youth with disabilities become effective heath care self-advocates.
When youth with disabilities have a health care transition plan and have effective health care self-advocacy skills, they have taken another step toward improving their quality of life.
