This training will examine the important benefits and rights available to youth using a toolkit created by Disability Rights Florida to assist youth and their adult supporters in transition planning. It covers education, employment, community integration, financial planning, medical insurance, housing, Vocational Rehabilitation, and voting. The training and tool kit addresses the specific needs of youth in state care in collaboration.
