Pathways to Adulthood Transition Program
The TxP2P Pathways to Adulthood program assists families to envision a good life for their sons and daughters with disabilities after graduation and provides support, information and tools for carrying out this vision.
Here is how we can help:
Pathways to Adulthood offers free, 5-hour workshops across Texas on all major transition topics: funding and long term supports, public school services, legal issues, medical transition and a creative approach to building opportunities for work, an independent home, and networks of support. The workshops are led by parents of youth and adults with disabilities who share their experiences throughout the day. Check the TxP2P home page for the current schedule of workshops, and let us know if you would like to host a workshop in your area by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The annual TxP2P Parent Conference includes two days of sessions on transition topics and a program designed specifically for young people who are approaching adulthood. TxP2P also provides 1-day regional workshops that include transition information. Check the TxP2P home page for the current schedule
Please call or email our office to connect with an experienced parent who can provide other parents with emotional support and advise callers on such issues as deciding about guardianship, applying for SSI, and managing school services. Call 866-896-6001 or email email@example.com.
