Join us on July 17 and 18, 2019 at the 2019 PA Community on Transition Conference hosted by PaTTAN at The Penn Stater Conference Center and Hotel in State College, PA.
Members of the ATS Family Support and Community Engagement Team will be available to share information and answer questions on Wednesday in the Exhibit Hall from 10am-5:30pm.
On Thursday at 1pm, Catherine Hughes will be presenting "Demonstrating the Need for Teaching Self Care and Healthy Relationships to Prevent Victimization" with Sharon Greene, Executive Administrator for ACHIEVA.
Young adults with disabilities need instruction, repetition, and remediation in such areas as hygiene, self-care, sexuality, and relationships. They face challenges with social media, crime, and partnerships. We must facilitate skill acquisition and address topics in a developmentally appropriate and proactive manner to ensure successful transition and encourage prevention of crime and victimization.
