The Pine Tree Society and Maine Parent Federation have partners to offer a program geared toward youth of transition age (grades 7-12) with disabilities and their parents/caregivers!
Finding Your Voice is a fun, interactive workshop for youth with disabilities co-led by a young adult who has firsthand experience navigating transition to adulthood, along with a Maine Parent Federation facilitator. The conversation will focus on ways to become better, stronger self-advocates. Whatever your hopes, dreams, and goals are for your future, being able to make decisions and speak up for what you want and need to be successful is important now and in the future.
Concurrently, parents will participate in a workshop geared toward their needs. Transition: The High School Years, is a workshop designed to educate participants on rights and responsibilities around their child’s transition to adulthood.
