We Can Make Your Child’s Transition To Adulthood Easier
For a child with special needs, the transition to adulthood can be a complicated experience. To ensure that your child becomes the most independent adult possible, it is critical to take pivotal steps during their adolescent years. For this reason, being aware of your child’s legal rights is invaluable.
As with many facets of special education, your child’s transitional services are subject to certain requirements. At The Law Offices of Gerry McMahon, LLC, we have a unique understanding of how the transition process functions, and we routinely assist families primarily in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and Westchester County, New York.
Services Are Available
If you have experience with the special education system in either Connecticut or New York, you understand that dealing with government agencies can be confusing. Attorney McMahon can help you with:
- Guiding you through the Individualized Education Program (IEP), which will assess your child’s vocational interests and strengths
- Navigating the government agencies that can serve your child
- Ensuring that your child’s financial needs are met
Your child can receive transition services beginning at age 15, but it may be helpful to begin thinking about their future at a younger age. Consulting with an attorney who understands the nuances of the transition process can prepare your child for success in adulthood.
