Fair Finds Disability Resources for Transition to Adulthood

Posted on Updated on

Individuals seeking adult services for disabilities and their families learned about what is available at the Family Resource and Transitions Fair, this past October 5. The gathering of service providers, sponsored by the Staten Island Developmental Disabilities Council, was held at the College of Staten Island for families of people transitioning from school to adult programs.  Emphasizing the rights of individuals to stand up for themselves, the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities is shifting towards more person centered services, which were a major topic of interest this year.

Our crew covered the event with interviews and photos at the College of Staten Island.
