Event Details

Youth with disabilities can sometimes have a difficult time transitioning from high school to the adult world.  One of the best ways to find out what the needs are of young people is to ask them.  The Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs, (CCSHCN) in collaboration with the University of Kentucky Human Development Institute, (UK HDI) is conducting a one day youth forum that will bring together older youth (ages 21 to 30 years old) with special health care needs that have successfully transitioned from high school to the adult world to identify barriers to and opportunities for successful transition in all major areas: Education, Career, Relationships, Mobility & Transportation, Finances, Housing and Adult Healthcare.

Participants in the Forum will also have the opportunity to apply to become peer mentors to youth with special health care needs who are preparing to transition.  Mentors will be provided training and support prior to being matched with a mentee.  Additional information about mentoring will be provided during the Forum.
