P4P is pleased to offer this valuable three-part series focused on planning beyond graduation.

Each presentation is designed to inform, guide and inspire families, educators and supporters as they help young people living with a disability to transition from high school into adulthood. All parents want the best for their kids as they move into each new phase of life. For families seeking the best possible future for a child with a disability, planning ahead is everything.



REALITY CHECK

Part 1: Thursday, May 25 at 7pm

At least two years before a child with a disability graduates high school or turns 18, parents can begin implementing strategies to enhance their son or daughter’s future wellbeing.  Innovating new and better solutions can enhance quality of life – for everyone.

GETTING INVOLVED AND STAYING CONNECTED

Part 2: Thursday, June 1 at 7pm

·      Nurturing and sustaining connections beyond the classroom




RAISING THE BAR ON EMPLOYMENT

Part 3: Thursday June 8 at 7pm

Supporting an individual with a disability to contribute by working enhances their dignity and self worth and leads to new social connections. We believe, that until proven differently, everyone is capable of and deserves to work. Learn some practical strategies to move your son or daughter towards work.

·      Why jobs are a prerequisite to full inclusion, self-esteem and social networks
