CSHS Transition Resources for Youth and Families       


Youth Health Transition (YHT) is the time to get ready for the move from pediatric to adult health care, work, and independence.  

Youth with Special Health Care Needs may require additional assistance with locating appropriate adult health care providers, identifying job/education opportunties for after high-school, and exploring independent living options. 

Check out the CSHS tools below - these tools are designed to help youth and their family get ready for adult health care and independence!
