2014 TRANSITION CONFERENCE INFORMATION HERE

Join Autism New Jersey’s first conference focused exclusively on the transition to adulthood.  This critical time in the life of a person with autism requires careful planning and preparation on the part of parents/caregivers and professionals.  Navigating the changes from school to the adult service system is challenging.  Our esteemed speakers will present on a variety of legal, educational, vocational, social, and financial topics specifically addressing adolescence and the changes that come with the end of the high school years.
