Life Transition Series: Alternatives to Guardianship

April 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Life Transition Series is comprised of 9 workshops designed to provide families of
students with disabilities transitioning from school with valuable information and
resources to facilitate a seamless transition. Each session will focus on a specific topic.

The Life Transition Series is open to all families at no cost. Registration is required for
all afternoon workshops in order to provide handouts to all participants. Registration is
not required for Transition Night.

All workshops, with the exception of Transition Night, are from Noon to 1:30. Feel free
to bring your lunch. Students are welcome to attend; however, they will need to use
good discretion about missing time from class.

Transition Night (located at Severna Park HS) is from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Students
are encouraged to attend.

If you need an interpreter for any of the workshops, please contact Jackie Schrader two
weeks prior to the workshop.

If schools dismiss early or close due to inclement weather, the workshop will be
rescheduled. If schools have a one or two-hour delay, the workshop will take place.

Alternatives to Guardianship:

Should my son/daughter have a guardian? This is a question that often arises for
persons with developmental disabilities. In particular, many parents feel that they must
establish guardianship to ensure adequate care for their family member after he or she
reaches a particular age. In many cases, well-meaning actions by family members can
lead to unimagined consequences for other family members in the future. Each family
should explore the pros and cons regarding guardianship.
