The Transition and Vocational Rehabilitation Services conference was held January 21, 2022. The conference was offered free of charge courtesy of the conference sponsors, the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Aging and Long-Term Support Administration and the TBI Council of Washington.
The uncertainty that comes with leaving the familiar environment of home and high school and navigating the maze of young adult life is intimidating. Helping a student transition from high school to the next stage of their life requires planning and a thorough understanding of the services available to them. This conference aimed to increase participants knowledge of transition services and strategies for supporting students with TBI who are transitioning from high school to adult life. Topics included postsecondary education and vocational rehabilitation services.
