Presenter: Stephanie Daviess
Adolescents are expected to know how to self-advocate, self-manage and be autonomous when they transition into adulthood, however these skills are rarely explicitly taught and developed through the childhood and adolescent life course. This is even more prominent for adolescents with disabilities. This webinar will highlight the occupational therapist’s crucial role in the development and the promotion of skills to facilitate transition planning. Relevant theoretical background and helpful evidence-based tools that can support occupational therapists with transition planning within an educational context will also be shared.
After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
Children (5-12 years old), Adolescents (13-19 years old)
