Exploring transition from childhood to adulthood through co-working between families and professionals to enhance practice and participation

The Organising Committee of the 32nd European Academy of Childhood Disability Annual Meeting 2020 and the moderators of the Family and Professionals co-working forum, here is the invitation to a web workshop “Exploring transition from childhood to adulthood through co-working between families and professionals to enhance practice and participation”.

Transition from childhood to adulthood is a very challenging moment in the life of a person with disability and their family. One has to decide on his/her future and make choices that may have an irreversible influence on his/her life. At the same time a person needs to adapt to new support forms and the adults health care system.

How to deal with these challenges and make good choices? How to support a person and his/her family during the transition process : these are some of the topics will be discussed on the 24th November 2020 during the online meeting in Poznań.

If you are a person with a childhood onset disability, a parent, a sibling of such a person or a professional involved with transition to adulthood of disabled adolescents, please join the meeting to share your experience and help to find solutions, identify priorities, form long and short term recommendations and tasks.

The session will have an interactive form. The participants will be working in small groups discussing the issues raised in the session in English.
It is supposed to lead to a report shared with participants and a publication about concerns, challenges, examples of solutions and facilitators identified during the session. Content of the publication will be anonymized to preserve freedom of speech.

Register for this afternoon small group session (3pm to 7pm on November 24th during the EACD 2020 web conference) using the form https://www.termedia.pl/Konferencja-32nd-European-Academy-Of-Childhood-REGISTER-Family-and-Professional-Co-working-Forum,792,12025.html
