Transition Workshops to address common challenges adolescents with TSC face as they transition to adulthood.

The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, in collaboration with the Child Neurology Foundation, Mass Mutual and The Arc, will host two Transition Workshops in New York, NY (October 14) and San Diego, CA (November 4) to address common challenges adolescents with TSC face as they transition to adulthood. Topics will include navigating the healthcare system, post-primary education options, understanding what living options (independent, semi-dependent, dependent) are available, guardianship and financial planning.

The goal of these all-day transition workshops is to give parents and caregivers tangible resources that they can take with them from the workshop and empower them with clear timelines and next steps to develop an effective transition plan for their child. The TS Alliance has partnered with The Arc, Child Neurology Foundation and Mass Mutual because these organizations have pre-existing tools and best practices to assist through different aspects of the transition plan, and their expertise will be vital to families in attendance.

Topics include:

  • Medical Transition Planning
  • Educational Transition Planning
  • Social, Housing and Employment Issues
  • Guardianship and Financial Planning
