This session has been rescheduled to April 2,2018, to register - jump to that date!
The NSSED Parent Education Series On Transition: Funding, Housing and Employment helps families learn and understand their options for supporting their child outside of the school system. After the school years, parents become the main advocate (case manager) for their child, so it is important to learn about the options that are available to create a set of supports in the community. These two hour workshops are free and open to the community.
Questions can be directed to Susan Hans, NSSED Parent Mentor at (831) 5100 x 2228 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
State Funded Housing and Day Program Options
Juan Aponte, Community Alternative Unlimited, will explain eligibility and participation in state funded programming for housing and day programs. This is fundamental to understanding what is available in Illinois.
