Training Modules for the Transition to Adult Living: An Information and Resource Guide

The three training modules (Service Provider Training, Administrator Training, and Family Workshop) are designed to accompany the Transition to Adult Living: An Information and Resource Guide.

Each module contains an agenda, a PowerPoint presentation with trainer's notes, and an information sheet on how to print the trainer's notes and handouts.
