Hertfordshire County Council produce new guide to help people with special needs 'navigate' after education
A guide has been drawn-up to help young people with special needs in Hertfordshire navigate the transition to adulthood.
The pamphlet, produced by Hertfordshire County Council, gives parents and carers practical advice about adjusting to life after education finishes.
It includes information about post-16 choices, social care, health, money, leisure, and housing.
Patricia Walker, lead author and senior officer for Services for Young People said: "The guide aims to help young people navigate their way through transition as they move from childhood to adulthood."
Councillor Richard Roberts, the Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, added: "The teenage years can be a challenging time for any child but especially so for a disabled young person and their family.
"This guide aims to help families to better understand the range of support available to them, enabling disabled young people to reach their full potential as they transition from child to adulthood."
