Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap

“Bridging the Gap” was piloted in 2018 with similar content to the parent curriculum Build Your Bridge, but with adaptations for a shorter time available (e.g. a conference breakout) and modular information tailored to different audiences.  The 45-60 minute presentation is one that is appropriate for mixed audiences (parents and professionals) and provides resources and referrals for more information but is not designed to focus on skill-building or creating a transition plan for individual youth and families. Please contact your local Regional Center (link opens in a new tab) to see about scheduling.

Build Your Bridge Family Education

Build Your Bridge: Moving from Child to Adult Health Care

Date and Times will vary, check with your local Regional Center for a presentation near you!

This is a free presentation and conversation to help guide families through the transition from child-centered to adult health care systems. Youth and families are often overwhelmed and under-prepared for the transition to adult health care. This presentation will introduce and discuss when to start thinking about health care transition as well as provide helpful tools and resources. Visit the Regional Center section to find a presentation near you, or contact us.

As a result of participating in this presentation we hope you will:
• Define youth healthcare transition, what it is and why it is important.
• Identify activities in daily life where transition occurs.
• Apply tools and resources to take an active role in the health care transition process.
• Start a health transition action plan.
