“Transitional” aged kids are 14 and older.  But even if they aren’t 14 yet, parents should be proactive in preparing them for their future, says Heather Endres. 

She just attended a workshop on transition, sponsored by OCECD and the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI).  She received resource packs, and wanted us to know about options.  For more, visit www.OCECD.org and www.ocali.org.
