13-1330G Transitions - The 3 R’s of Transition to Adulthood: Responsibility, Regulation, Relationships

Nancy Desando

Regulation, responsibility and relationships are critical for a teen or young adult to develop to be successful in their journey to independence. This session will cover how to effectively support young adults with intellectual and learning differences and how to use evidence-based strategies in real world settings to create success in college, employment and independent living. We will discuss strategies to improve self-regulation including self-management, problem solving and handling change; will review teaching responsibility through self-advocacy, making choices and goal setting, as well as growing relational skills to socialize and relate positively to peers  and employers.
