Transition to Adulthood: Ages 18-22

Preparation for the transition to adulthood can start early in the teenage years. Whether you graduate from school at the age of 18 or 22, your case manager is there as someone trained to assist you and help you determine the best plan. Your case manager will listen to your specific concerns based on your diagnosis and your needs, then create a program of service and support tailored just for you.

Depending on your individual diagnosis, whether you are still eligible for special education, your functioning, needs and on community resources, the following services may be available to you as determined by policies established by our Board. State law requires, however, that we explore alternate sources of funding before using Regional Center funds. Your IPP (Individual Program Plan) identifies services and plans necessary for you to achieve your agreed-upon objectives and what will be funded.
