Supporting Youth to Adult Health Care Transition

Families & Youth

[copied from Got Transition, need to put in our own words]

During childhood, you usually help with health and health care needs—calling to set up appointments, filling out forms, and keeping track of medications. As your youth gets older, managing those needs becomes their own responsibility. Achieving this independence requires an organized transition process for them to gain independent health care skills, prepare for an adult model of care, and transfer to new clinicians.

See below for tools, resources, and trainings to help guide your child’s transition to adult-centered health care.
