Transition describes the move from children’s services to adult services.
This can involve leaving school, transferring from children and family services to adult social care services, and/or transferring from paediatric services to adult health services, it can also involve leaving college and moving to employment. Family carers are often concerned about what will happen when their young person leaves full-time education.
They may also worry about the impact on their own lives, as schools provide a settled pattern, along with the opportunity to work, study or just have some time to themselves.
This section is designed to provide information for young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND) on support and services available to help them make informed choices about their futures and includes information on a wide range of subjects.
