St. Mary’s understands the important tasks families face when their children begin to approach the age of 18, as they prepare for all of the challenges of transition from the pediatric healthcare system into the adult world. St. Mary’s e-Toolkit is an online resource that helps families navigate the complicated road to transition.
Transition is a process, not an event. Successful transition involves developing a comprehensive plan of care. Transition impacts everything in a young adult’s life – including healthcare services, insurance coverage, supportive services, residential options, school, and financial considerations.
The information in this e-Toolkit, funded in part by a grant from the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (NYSDDPC), is designed to provide families in New York with basic information and access to key resources for transition planning.
